An Editorial Change At The BTN Group

It's with many mixed emotions and after much careful consideration that I announce this is my last day as editor-in-chief of The BTN Group.

I'll still contribute to BTN Group publications, including Business Travel News, The Beat, Travel Procurement and, but I have new twin babies at home (one boy, one girl, both healthy), and my main role is going to be taking care of them.

Taking my place as editor-in-chief is Elizabeth West, currently The BTN Group's executive editor for content solutions and formerly editor-in-chief of MeetingNews. Joining her is our new managing editor, Amanda Metcalf, who has served in high-level roles in several publications. I know that Beth, Amanda, David Meyer and the rest of The BTN Group's excellent editorial staff__Jay Boehmer, Michael B. Baker, JoAnn DeLuna and Julie Sickel__will continue and improve upon the best industry news, analysis and research available anywhere.

I'll still be writing, so please contact me through LinkedIn.

I'd like to thank all of you for all your insights and assistance over the years, and wish you all the best.
