New editor at British Bandsman
It has been announced that Mark Good has been appointed as the 14th Editor of the British Bandsman. Mark will take over from the respected Andrew Wainwright, who is departing to concentrate on a freelance role as composer, arranger, graphic designer and writer.
On the Bandsman's Facebook site, IBB Media Ltd Managing Director, Martin Gernon stated: "Andrew had probably one of the most difficult jobs in the history of the Bandsman — changing the magazine from print into digital, and he has performed a wonderful job for us in doing just that and reinforcing the publication as the leader in the brass band field.
We wish Andrew the very best in his new freelance career and know that he will succeed in whatever he does in the future.
"In choosing a successor, Mark Good was our first choice. Not only a trained journalist, but steeped in brass music as a player, conductor, writer and enthusiast. Technically, Mark is extremely savvy, editorially very astute, musically hugely experienced and makes a wonderful senior figure in our rapidly expanding team."
Commenting on his appointment, Mark Good said: "I'm honoured to be named as the new Editor of British Bandsman and I look forward to building on the sterling work undertaken by Andrew Wainwright, who has done much to guide the iconic magazine into a new, digital era."
