We are delighted to welcome Alison McGonagle-O’Connell to the Editoria team as the new Editoria Community Manager. Alison has a long history in the publishing and technology industries, having held positions at Wiley, EBSCO, and Aries Systems. Most recently Alison was Global Product & Partner Marketing Manager at Aries, but Alison also spent a good amount of time as a production editor, so she is certainly no stranger to production workflows!
In this new role, Alison will be working closely with the Coko team—who have been helping us build Editoria—and will be managing the publisher, developer, and service provider communities for Editoria. Alison will play a key role in the evolution of Editoria, and will be driving and encouraging adoption and interfacing with members of the Editoria community. Catherine Mitchell (CDL), the Coko team, and I look forward to working closely with Alison. She will often be tweeting updates as @editoriapub. Follow us on Twitter to find out what’s happening with Editoria, and look for a email news (and a redesigned Editoria website) in the coming weeks. Please join us in welcoming Alison to the Editoria team!
