January 31, 2011
After nine years of loyal service to Boat International Media, Rebecca Cahilly has decided to step down as Editor of ShowBoats International following the recent birth of her second child.
We would like to thank her for all efforts and wish her every success for the future. Rebecca will continue to work for Boat International Media in a freelance capacity as a contributing editor.
As a result we are delighted to announce the following:
Marilyn Mower has been appointed Editorial Director Boat International Media-USA.
Kate Simpson Lardy has been appointed Editor of ShowBoats International magazine.
Lauren Beck, has been promoted to Editor of Dockwalk.
All three promotions are effective immediately, both Kate and Lauren will report into Marilyn who also retains editorial control over our annual publications: The Superyachts , the Megayachts and Refit.
Tony Harris, CEO and Publisher at Boat International Media said: “I am delighted to welcome Kate Simpson Lardy back to ShowBoats International, a magazine that she originally worked on as a senior editor for five years between 2000 and 2005.
Kate has tremendous experience in this industry and her success with Dockwalk over the last five years have proved her skills as an editor as she turned Dockwalk into the world’s No. 1 captains and crew magazine and website.
I am also pleased to promote Lauren Beck to Editor of Dockwalk. She has been the Managing Editor on the title for the last five years and I can think of no one better qualified to take on the role.
These three appointments confirm our commitment to the U.S. superyacht market and our appointment of Marilyn Mower to the new position of Editorial Director-USA will ensure that our U.S.-produced magazines and their digital versions will be steered by the most capable and experienced helmswoman in the marine press today.”
