From the managing editor
They say to understand the future, you need to understand the past.
Yet in a complex, fast-paced healthcare landscape, this can be difficult to say the least.
That is why publications like this one exist – to act as an ambassador, an opponent of and a champion for our industry and how it sees itself.
For our team of healthcare writers, editors and designers, this constant state of change has inspired us at every turn.
Being editor and then managing editor of PharmaTimes has been my passion for almost 15 years, while my colleague and editor Katrina Megget has spent seven years devoted to the magazine’s values and ethos of quality, independent content.
For both of us, the opportunity to build and develop a publication with clarity of voice and independence of view, in a world where the commercial pressures of publishing are all too evident, has been a pleasure and a privilege. And to have worked with an outstanding team to achieve this has been nothing short of an honour.
But ultimately it is our readers who are at the centre of what we do and helped us strive to be better every month.
So while this comes tinged with sadness as my final comment as managing editor of PharmaTimes (I have to confess writing this has been spectacularly hard!), Katrina and I part leaving a legacy on which, we believe, future success will be built.
