Hand Media International is pleased to announce the appointment of our new Managing Editor, Chris Maillard, who has recently joined our flourishing editorial team.
Chris is a highly experienced, award-winning editor, with nearly 40 years of top-level journalism under his belt including national newspapers, big-selling consumer magazines and highly successful B2B brands. He has won numerous awards, including very recently the 2019 Newspress Business Publication of the Year. Chris has joined Hand Media International on a mission to further refine, extend and improve their already successful suite of publications.
“I’m delighted to be joining such an ambitious company,” Chris said. “They have a great team and an excellent range of brands, so it’s the perfect moment to take their editorial offering to the next level. I’m very much looking forward to that challenge.”
David Rossiter, Managing Director, Hand Media International stated, “We are delighted to be able to attract talent such as Chris’s and we are very excited to be working with him as we take the next step forward for the business.”
Although Hand Media International is sad to be losing James Ling, we will be continuing to work with him on a variety of new digital pathways. We will be accessing the support he brings to our company via his new PR business, and we fully support his move. James will be working with us on podcast and webinar solutions for our business.
