I consider myself extremely fortunate in terms of the hiring decisions I have made over the past three years. Every single person has been loyal, hardworking, professional and flexible.
From my very first hire, Aimee Chanthadavong, who hit the ground running and has delivered stellar work ever since, to the inimitable Ben Grubb and Heather Wright, my superb New Zealand based Assistant Editor, and from our fantastic inhouse transcription specialist Kim Wiesenberger to our Contributing Editor Leon Spencer who will be taking up a full time role elsewhere in Media land after this, his last week at TT – every one has been amazing. What a team…
We wish Leon all the best for his next venture and I personally want to thank him for his time with us. A consummate professional and an outstanding writer, Leon also happens to be a great guy whose editorial services I would recommend without hesitation.
But wait, there’s more.
I’m very pleased to announce the appointment of our new Senior Journalist, Lilia Guan. An award winning journalist with over 15 years’ technology business writing experience, Lilia has written for a host of publications including CRN Magazine, CIO, and ZDNet.
She was the editor for Government News and has also produced media products such as videos and e-guides as the Branded Content Producer for CBS Interactive.
Based in Sydney, Lilia will be taking up her role this week.
Finally, I’m very happy to note that following a brief sabbatical, Assistant Editor Heather Wright will be back on deck as well.
