Paul Henderson was a senior member of the Mirror editorial team for the past decade before being promoted to the position of editor of the two Sunday titles.
Reach editor-in-chief Lloyd Embley said: “On a personal and professional level I will miss Paul's presence in the newsroom (real or virtual) enormously. He joined us as a Fleet Street legend and will leave as a Mirror one.
Lloyd Embley added, “Paul has been an inspirational mentor and guide for reporters and feature writers and I would like to extend our thanks to him for helping to develop and encourage so many colleagues in their careers. He has been a huge support for the entire team, and a true friend to me.”
Alison Phillips, editor of the Mirror said: “Paul has a wealth of experience, knowledge and passion for the job which I'd say is unmatched anywhere in the industry. He has helped guide so many great stories and campaigns into the papers and as Editor of the Sunday Mirror and Sunday People, Paul has led his team to create truly outstanding papers - particularly during the current crisis.”
Paul Henderson said: “Editing The Sunday Mirror and the Sunday People has been a fantastic privilege. After this, I am looking forward to new opportunities and challenges.”
