Richard Mansel has been named managing editor of Forthright Magazine, effective immediately.
In his previous post as assistant editor, Richard went far and beyond the call of duty.
The new position reflects much of what he’s already been doing — working hard as an editor and doing much more than a mere assistant.
In 2009, Forthright will launch a new column for him. He’ll move from the old column, “Square One,” writing articles for non-Christians, to a broader approach that will allow him more freedom to address wider issues of Christian living and to deal with cultural and social issues and tendencies.
Richard has brought a new dynamic to Forthright Magazine and has worked hard as a columnist who never misses a week, as a fill-in email editor with no title, as an assistant editor who went beyond the call of duty, and now as managing editor worthy of his badge.
We’re thankful to have such dedication as his in the service of the magazine.
What does this mean to you as a subscriber? You’ll not feel much change, since Richard already has been dealing with the day-to-day email and online tasks. It does mean you’ll hear more from him, and he’ll be showing up more in responses to queries and needs.
Besides Richard’s being constantly in touch on these subjects with associate editor Barbara Oliver and me, we frequently consult together on the larger vision of the magazine’s development and growth.
Why not write Richard a note of congratulations below in the comments section?
