Anthony introduces John Brazier as the site's new Buy-Side Technology deputy editor.

While there will be a new journalist writing this column each week, Anthony will still keep on writing for BST...and SST and Waters magazine and even IMD and IRD, if needed.

Back in June 2014, Tim Bourgaize Murray was officially named as the deputy editor for Buy-Side Technology, taking over for me. He served with aplomb until Dec. 31, 2015, and then he moved on to seek a newer world.

I'm the US editor and that title has its own specific challenges and duties, but while we were grooming the next BST deputy editor, the king ─ that's me, of course ─ had to return for a spell. But with this editor's letter, my watch has come to an end.

Now, before you jump to any conclusions, I'm still the US editor and I'm not leaving Waters anytime soon...unless you have a better job for me, and then I'll leave these guys in a second. (Shhhhh, that's just between you and me.) But what is changing is the byline that accompanies this weekly column.

But while I'll still be around and banging out stories for BST, this post will now be filled by my colleague, John Brazier. If you're a regular reader of WatersTechnology.com, then you've almost definitely have seen his work. But if you need a refresher, you can find all of his writings that he's done for us here.

On Twitter, John describes himself as a "cromulent human," who "does words for @WatersTech." He also "likes books, sitting, rule of three. Views, tweets and hair are [his] own." LinkedIn tells us that he's worked as a digital content coordinator and data journalist for Athene Publishing, writing for publications like Insolvency News, Credit Today and Payroll World (and don't those sound like a hoot?!). Prior to that, he was a research journalist and coordinator for IT Europa. (I guess that John wasn't good enough to make it up to IT Champions League.)

John graduated with a BA in creative writing and English lit from the University of Roehampton. I've never heard of that school, but I guess I can't be too snooty considering that I graduated from Plattsburgh State.

While I've Skyped with John, being that he's based in London, I have yet to meet him in person. But he seems like a smart, nice kid, even though it's probably just an act.

Anyway, feel free to shoot him an email. Or, feel free to talk to me
