Jeff Gledhill, The Fresno Bee’s vice president for operations since 2001, is assuming a new role in the McClatchy Company as West regional vice president of production.
McClatchy is the Sacramento-based parent company of The Bee.
In his new role, Gledhill will oversee production operations not only at The Bee, but also at The Sacramento Bee (which also prints The Modesto Bee), the San Luis Obispo Tribune, The Idaho Stateman in Boise and the Tacoma News-Tribune, which prints three newspapers in Washington state. Gledhill will remain based in Fresno.
“This is an important step in our ongoing efforts to streamline and consolidate our production operations as our mix of news products continues to evolve,” said Richard Rinehart, McClatchy’s direction of production.
