Stepping Up, and Getting Down to Business

By Lisa Gibson | January 05, 2012

When I began covering the biomass industry two and a half years ago, I knew it was a sector with enormous growth potential, but was unaware it would hold so much opportunity for me personally. I have traveled the country, attended biomass-related events and made valuable professional connections in this industry that will undoubtedly help smooth my transition to editor of Biomass Power & Thermal and Pellet Mill Magazine.

I am happy to keep Associate Editor Anna Austin as a crucial contributor to our content, and I welcome Associate Editor Luke Geiver, whose work will appear in the February issue. Luke already has experience in the biomass industry, writing for other BBI International publications, so he will be a great addition to our team.

I’ll miss working with Rona Johnson, but I wish her all the best. I am excited and very proud to take the reins and guide the broad, reliable industry coverage these two publications provide their readers. This issue is certainly no exception, so if you skipped my editor’s note and jumped right in, I don’t blame you.
