Subject: Congrats to Alex!
All: It’s truly a pleasure to announce officially Alex Dickinson’s promotion to Executive Managing Editor of our eight awesome sites that comprise Gizmodo Media. His list of accomplishments since joining GMG is long so I won’t recite them all here but to name a few he’s guided Gizmodo to record traffic during his tenure as deputy editor of the site, exercised impeccable judgment in editing and managing, recruited a killer group of reporters and editors into our family, and remained unflappable in representing edit’s interests in interactions with every department and throughout integration.
In the 13 months he has been here, Alex has embodied the best spirit of GMG with backbone and heart, and has been devoted to what we do best — putting out really good stories everyday. He’s been both an inspirational force and a steady hand in the newsroom as well as a trusted edit partner in managing. He’ll be critical to our search for an editorial director, while continuing to focus on setting strategy, supporting and managing edit. Alex also remains edit’s key contact for GMG product, sales, biz dev, and Univision’s other properties.
Cheers to Alex!
