Editor's comment: Changes at the IAB

Usually I am the silent partner in putting together the IAB editor's letter with Ana, but this time I wanted to start off with a few words of thanks to our subscribers.

At the start of June I will be moving on to a new challenge after five years at Timetric (formerly VRL), making this the last edition of IAB that I will have the pleasure of being involved in.

It's been a privilege to get to know the world of accounting, and to meet some of the driving forces behind the profession - I'm only sorry I didn't have longer to get stuck into the task.

It's clear that the present represents an opportunity for pivotal change in the way that networks and associations interact with the world of business, and I am enormously grateful for the time you have spent sharing your views and information with IAB so we can track and analyse the industry's movements.

Needless to say, there's going to be no shortage of further work for us. Having worked alongside Ana for the past four years and especially over the last 12 months, I have no doubt she will excel in the role of IAB editor, and as chair of our Advisory Board, as she continues to work with you.

On that note, I shall hand over to her. I wish you all great success, and hope we get the chance to cross paths again in future.
