Advantage Business Media Design Group editorial director, Alix Paultre, is leaving the organisation to join power supply manufacturer, Globtek, as marketing director. Alix joined Advantage Business Media in 2008 and during his tenure helped create and implement the initiative to refresh and re-purpose ECN (Electronic Component News), the flagship publication of the group, to better address its target audience of design engineers. The lessons from that effort are now being applied to the other publications of the group, and include new processes, sources, and ways to address online audiences using the latest in publishing tools and practices. Alix says he will continue to serve the design engineer as a member of the power electronics community and his duties at ADG will be handled by Chris Warner, executive editor at the group, for the time being. Chris can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
