Hand Media International is delighted to announce the recent promotion of Caitlin Gittins to Editor of the International Confectionery and International Bakery portfolios.
With a previous background in editorial for the grain and milling industries, Caitlin joined Hand Media in August 2022 as an Assistant Editor. In this time, Caitlin has overseen and produced editorial content for these publications digitally, virtually and in print. She played a key role in the launch of the first Confectionery Live, which has now grown into the must-attend virtual confectionery event, bringing together 1000+ attendees representing 83 countries.
With a dedication to editorial integrity and independence, reporting on the innovations, developments and challenges in this market has enabled Caitlin to foster a deeper understanding of the industries she works in, and to celebrate the efforts and achievements of those working in them. With this deeper knowledge of the markets, coupled with her high quality of content and reputation in the marketplace, Caitlin is fully deserving of this promotion to take the brands to the next level.
Speaking of the promotion, Caitlin stated, “I’m looking forward to getting further stuck into the confectionery and bakery industries. It has been a full-on year launching our virtual events Confectionery Live and Bakery Live and witnessing the growth of the leading confectionery and bakery titles. A special mention to our Managing Editor Rebecca Spayne, Publisher Jonathan Pittock, and the wider editorial team for all of your support. I’m excited to see what the future holds.”
Jonathan Pittock, Publisher, Hand Media International said, “This promotion is fully deserved. I wish to congratulate Caitlin on a fantastic year with Hand Media International, we have seen substantial growth and engagement across International Confectionery as well as International Bakery Magazine and her leadership curating the content has been a major factor in our success. More launches in this market are imminent and I am confident she will go from strength to strength.”
