Personality of the Year
The Production Journal Award


Freddy Johnston, Johnston Press


Frederick Patrick Mair Johnston - Freddy to his friends - was named Personality of the Year by PJ editor Gary Cullum
 
  "Throughout his career, Freddy has made an enormous contribution to the regional newspaper industry and has served on many associated committees and organisations, including the Scottish Newspaper Proprietors' Association, the Young Newspapermen's Association, Master Printers of Scotland and the Press Council, now the Press Complaints Commission. He is still an active member of the Commonwealth Press Union and the World Association of Newspapers.
A past president of the Newspaper Society, Freddy was made a CBE in 1993, and has been a non-executive director of Johnston Press since his retirement as chairman in April last year.
Under Freddy's control, his family business grew from just four titles and £100,000 turnover in the 1960s to the present day Johnston Press - one of the largest and most successful newspaper publishing operations, a near billion pound company comprising almost 250 titles and employing 9,000 staff."
