Long term editorial director Matt Eaton is set to depart from Marketing Hong Kong after eight years in the hot seat.
As the first editor of the title who helped build Marketing’s strong network and reputation as Hong Kong’s leading source of intelligence and thought leadership in the category.
Matt will be stepping out of advertising and marketing media to try his hand in another field, while he will continue to have a strong bond with Marketing and will occasionally produce thought leadership pieces for Marketing magazine.
“It’s always sad to see long term team members move on especially those who were there from the start, but Matt has put in a solid eight years with Marketing Hong Kong and helped us shape it in many ways,” said Lighthouse Independent Media, managing director for Hong Kong and Mainland China, Tony Kelly.
“We wish Matt all the best in his new adventures ahead and thank him for the years and dedication he has poured into Marketing magazine and into the industry.”
Kelly said Marketing Hong Kong was in safe hands, on the eve of moving to larger premises to accommodate further expansion of the business.
“I have full confidence in the new team and our existing talent to continue Marketing Hong Kong’s rise and expansion as the market’s most influential, media and events brand in the marketing category,” Kelly said.
Marketing is currently searching for Eaton’s replacement who will build on a new fresh team anchored by deputy editor Inti Tam.
“We will make further announcements on Marketing Hong Kong’s editorial line up shortly,” Kelly said.
