Blog: Leonie BarrieGoodbye, and welcome

Leonie Barrie | 3 November 2003

As one chapter closes here at just-style.com, another one opens. At the end of this week we will bid a fond farewell to news editor Richard Ewing as he prepares to leave Blighty for a round-the-world escapade that takes in Sri Lanka, Australia, New Zealand, the USA, Peru and Brazil – and all the sporting fixtures he can handle along the way. If all goes to plan, Richard doesn’t intend to return to these shores. I’d like to thank him personally for his fantastic contribution to the site over the past two years – in particular his more tongue-in-cheek stories which take a light-hearted look at some of the more bizarre aspects of this industry.

As Richard prepares to head east, we have today extended a warm welcome to his successor Chris Veraa who hails from ‘down under’. With a background in business journalism in his native Australia, Chris will bring a new dimension to our news coverage and play an important part in our plans to extend just-style’s coverage over the next year. You can contact him with press releases, leads, or even gossip at: chris.veraa@just-style.com
