Lee Enterprises : Mary Junck Moves To Chairman

Lee Enterprises Inc. (LEE) said that Mary Junck plans to transition from executive chairman after the annual shareholders meeting in February 2019 and will continue as chairman of the board of directors.

The change in responsibilities will complete a transition plan that included the advancement of Kevin Mowbray to president and chief executive officer in 2016.

As executive chairman since then, Junck has served as an adviser to the CEO and continued to guide Lee's overall strategy and direction. As chairman, she will provide leadership for the board of directors and lead projects as requested by the board and the CEO.

Junck, 71, joined Lee in 1999 as executive vice president and chief operating officer. She became president in 2000, chief executive in 2001 and chairman in 2002.

The 2019 Lee annual meeting of shareholders is scheduled for February 20 in Davenport.
