I’m on a long-planned overseas vacation this week, but TWICE made some news while I’m away: Marcia Grand, VP/publisher of TWICE, who has been here since 1986 when the magazine was born and helped make it the industry leader, is retiring.
Our new VP/publisher is Ed Hecht. (See story here.). He has a diverse background working for several major publishing titles and building a great record in print and digital formats. He is no stranger to the CE business, having attended International CES several times.
Marcia will be with us through the end of April as part of Ed’s transition as VP/publisher. I’ll have much more to say about her career and contributions to TWICE as we approach April 30.
In the meantime, please help me welcome Ed to TWICE and the electronics/appliance industry, and wish him and Marcia the best of luck.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
