goodbye and hello

Let’s keep this short, shall we?

This Friday will be my last day as The Truth About Cars’ managing editor. On Monday, I begin a new career elsewhere, outside of journalism but still in the automotive industry.

But this isn’t really a goodbye. I’ll be vacating the seat to sit in another as an editor-at-large here at TTAC, and will stay for as long as my replacement will have me.

Speaking of my replacement …

… there is none. At least not yet.

Steph Willems and Timothy Cain will be handling many of the day-to-day editorial duties from my portfolio of responsibilities. Jonathan Yarkony, my boss at VerticalScope, will take on my office duties. I wish these guys the best as they continue to pilot TTAC for the foreseeable future.

However, TTAC still needs someone to champion its cause and steer it into the future. That’s where you come in: my job is up for grabs. If you think you have what it takes, head on over to our LinkedIn posting and drop your name in the hat.

I’d like to thank you all — TTAC’s editorial staff and freelancers, its vibrant community members, and those in the industry who’ve given us the opportunity to show what we can do when given the chance. The site and community have grown and seen success because of all of you.

See you soon.

    I heard you're taking Matt Posky with you. True?

    I only just read this but I wish you well in future endeavours. Things have changed a lot since I started coming here in around 2008/09...although I only registered in 2012 (under a different name)...

  • Mark, for navigating SS TTAC through the political and economically mine-laden waters of the last two + years I salute you. Much thanks for stepping into the fray. I'd rather be the spinning target guy at a carnival knife thrower's sideshow but you made it look not-terrible; the whole righting the ship and exterminating trolls thing. Hopefully your new gig has a Batmobile or two. Just shooting spitballs. Bye!

    Good luck and hope we might see an article from or two from you from time to time.
