AspenCore, publisher of several leading B2B electronics media including EETimes and EDN, has embarked on a reorganisation that has seen the departure of North American managing director, David Blaza, and veteran Electronic Products Magazine editor, Jim Harrison.

David joined AspenCore in March this year. Until May 2013, he was employed for over 19 years at the EETimes Group. He then had short spells at Avnet and Maker Media, with a year as a freelance consultant between these roles.
