IPC CONNECT APPOINTS NEW DIGITAL PUBLISHER
The appointment of Paul Lomax as digital publisher for IPC Connect is announced today. Currently internet technology manager within CALMtech – the team responsible for designing, building and evolving many of our brand websites – Paul will take up his new role on Monday, January 8, reporting directly to managing director Evelyn Webster.
Announcing the move, Evelyn says: “I’m delighted to welcome Paul to the Connect publishing team. There is already a raft of excellent work taking place in the digital space across Connect, and Paul’s impressive track record in website development will be a great asset as we progress our digital strategy still further.”
Paul joined IPC in 2001 as senior solutions developer on the relaunch of ybw.com, and subsequently played a major role in the NME.com relaunch in 2002. In his current role, he has been involved in the launch of over 30 of our brand websites across CALM, Connect, SouthBank and tx and most recently has been leading the major development of countrylife.co.uk, which will establish it as the premium property portal when it relaunches in February.
Head of electronic media Kim Hollamby adds: “It’s hard to overstate Paul’s contribution to the development of IPC’s online interests over the past six years. His energy is boundless, his ability to absorb new knowledge unmatchable and his desire to make a commercial success of our websites constant. I’m delighted that he will be able to bring fully all of that to bear in his new role.
He will be a hard act to follow, but we will be announcing some key changes over the next few days that will illustrate perfectly that Paul has also grown a great team of people around him.”
