Staff Comings and Goings

Recommended Posts

Given the size of our staff (nearly 75 now), we'll document arrivals, departures and significant internal moves on this topic.

We'd like to bid a fond farewell to several staff members who have served the eGullet Society, some for many years, and have now moved on to other projects and duties. Stanley Santos (SobaAddict70), Alberto Chinali (Albiston), Wendy DeBord, Neil Robertson (nightscotsman), Arne Salvesen (Daddy-A) and Jon Lurie (jhlurie) have or will soon be stepping down. They take with them our deep and sincere thanks -- we wouldn't have gotten this far without them -- and our best wishes for their future success.

Most of our former staff choose to participate in our eGullet Society staff emeritus program, so you'll still see them around the forums as fellow members and contributors.

Along with departures, we have two significant appointments.

First, we're very pleased to announce that Susan Burgess (Susan in FL) will be handling the eG Foodblogs, effective immediately. Susan has done excellent work in our Florida and Beer forums, and has been an important part of our behind-the-scenes development efforts. Expect some nice improvements in eG Foodblogs with her in charge.

Second, you might have noticed that Margaret McArthur (maggiethecat) has been sporting a red name for a couple of weeks now. This was an unadvertised administrative move in anticipation of the real news: with great pleasure, we announce the appointment of Maggie to editorial director of the Daily Gullet. As you know if you've followed the eGullet Literary Smackdown through its 27 rounds, her knowledge, taste and wit, as well as her fortitude, qualify her in spades. Be on the watch for a re-energized webzine.

If you'd like to say hello, goodbye, good luck or thanks to an arriving or departing member of our staff, please do send that person a personal message (PM) or email.

Practice. Do it over. Get it right.

Mostly, I want people to be as happy eating my food as I am cooking it.

With great regret, we announce that Marlene Newell is stepping down from her duties as chief administrative officer of the eGullet Society. As anyone who knows Marlene, that greatly understates her contribution: she was also personnel director, co-head of eG Forums, co-host of the food media and news forum, host of last resort for any number of other forums, and took on other tasks too numerous to mention, including being surrogate mother to a large portion of Society staff.

Her talent, acumen and fortitude will be greatly missed. We wish her all the luck in the world, even as we expect her to continue to contribute great content to eG Forums, and continue as a valued member of the Society board of directors.

Tim Hayward will no longer be hosting the UK forum. We're sorry to see him step down, but he'll be continue to be active on eG Forums, and we can expect to see his byline with greater frequency, not only in the UK press, but in the Daily Gullet as well.

Many thanks, Tim.

Marsha Lynch (aka zilla369) will no longer be hosting the Food Media and News forum. We're sad to see her go, and we thank her sincerely for the time, energy and talent she lent to the Society.

See you in the forums, Marsha!

Michael Laderman (aka Pan), long-time New York forum host and Society manager, is stepping down. Michael's hard work and tireless dedication was inspiring; we hope he'll continue to spend as much free time as he can reading and posting on eG Forums.

Thank you, Michael.
