Ta Ta for Now: My Goodbye to Waters

Dan issues his final weekly editor’s letter before leaving for Risk.net.

goodbye

All good things must come to an end.

Goodbyes are always awkward, so I’ll try to make this one quick.

This will be my last weekly editor’s letter, as I’ll be leaving WatersTechnology on April 28. The move is not being made with any ill will, as I still hold the publication in the highest regard and have a deep appreciation for the entire staff.

In fact, I’ll actually be staying within the same media company. I’m joining Risk.net to work on the commodities desk, covering the entire space, as opposed to just technology.

Hopefully you’ve enjoyed my time as deputy editor here over the past few years. I tried to keep this column fun and unique, instead of simply spewing cliché takes that you’ve already heard before.

Going forward, I leave you in the very capable hands of my London-based colleague John Brazier, who will be switching over from Buy-Side Technology. Anthony Malakian, our US editor, will take over the BST editor’s letter until we find a suitable replacement.

This won’t be the last you’ll hear from me. I have a feature that should go live within the next few weeks looking at the impact of the speed-bump proposals we’ve seen over the past year. Anthony and I also looked back at some of my old stories in the most recent Waters Wavelength podcast, which should be up on Thursday.

It’s worth mentioning that the podcast will continue in my absence, as Anthony will run the show going forward. I strongly recommend you all subscribe and listen going forward, as it’s a good way to get some insight on the biggest trends in the space every week.

But for now, I bid you all adieu. Thanks for checking back in each week to see what crazy idea I was trying to pitch. Hopefully you enjoyed yourself.

And if you’re in the commodities space, feel free to reach out to me: [email protected].
