Reward Strategy is today announcing a restructure of its editorial team, with a new group editor, deputy editor and content writer.
Amber-Ainsley Pritchard, currently editor of Reward Strategy, will take the reins of group editor at Shard Financial Media - meaning she will oversee the content agendas for Reward Strategy and sister titles, Credit Strategy, TRI News and FSE.
Reward Strategy is currently in the process of hiring a deputy editor and content writer to work alongside Amber on the publication.
The moves come as Marcel Le Gouais, managing editor of Credit Strategy, sadly leaves the company later this month.
Marcel has been with Shard Financial Media for eight years, but will leave his current role to take on a new position at Insurance Insider group, part of Euromoney.
Credit Strategy has also secured a full-time journalist to join the editorial team, Lauren Tavener. For the past 18 months, Lauren has been working with the team to break news, write in-depth analysis and cover features for the magazine on a freelance basis, as she imminently completes a masters in journalism.
Alongside these changes, Reward Strategy will continue to deliver both informative and innovative content through its platforms, from magazines to online news, in-person and broadcast events. The increased investment in the editorial team only means we can provide our audience with high quality editorial more often.
Marcel said: “A recruitment drive, along with Amber’s knowledge, steady hand as editor and her experience over five years working across all our brands, will ensure we deliver the premium insight and intelligence for all titles.”
Amber said: “I’m delighted to be taking on the role of group editor at Shard Financial Media, to oversee the content agendas for Reward Strategy, TRI News, FSE and Credit Strategy.
“Having worked on each of the brands independently, I’m excited to now play a collective part in each title and ensure all our publications and platforms continue to tackle topical issues, educate readers and push barriers where possible.”
Marcel added: “I’m sad to be leaving the business after such a long time. Delivering content in all its forms is a collaborative endeavour and I’d like to thank all my colleagues for support in creating and delivering the magazine, our premium insight briefings and assisting me in my role as chair of our broadcasts.”
