Hey, Mom, I Got A Promotion!

Well, I finally did it. All that hard work -- I thought it went unnoticed -- but the Lockwood Publishing Company has now graciously appointed me as editor Larry Frank, our advertising director, has also been appointed as co-publisher -- a publishing team to assure quality editorial coverage and effective sales. Larry and I have had a rocky beginning, a rocky present, and will most likely have a rocky future. But there's one thing we are in harmonious accord together: our passion for the magazine. Despite the obstacles we placed in each other's path, we have appreciated and realized what each person has brought to the magazine. I couldn't ask for a better co-worker to share this honor with.

Tea & Coffee Trade Journal has grown much since I began with the magazine 20 years ago: I served in an office of four; now, the editorial staff has grown to include three editors, an art director, a designer, and interns. In fact, I am pleased to announce that Rosanna Mazzei has been promoted from associate editor to senior editor; she also serves as our on-line editor and handles our expanding web site Tea & Coffee Trade Online. I am also happy to share that Emerson Leonard, previously the assistant editor, has been promoted to associate editor; he is also the editor of our Ukers' International Directory & Buyers' Guide.

We begin preparations for our magazine's centennial anniversary in 2001 -- that's right, 100 years! Tea & Coffee Trade Journal was founded in 1901. Since its inception, the magazine has had only four editors -- myself being the fourth -- and four publishers -- again, myself being the fourth. (I intend to start playing numbers shortly.)

Over the years our editorial content has grown to cover many facets of the industry including the ever-increasing specialty and foodservice sectors. This year, Suzanne Brown, one of our correspondents, will cover the rapidly growing online market for the tea and coffee industries in a column to be published every other month, keeping us informed of the myriad opportunities and changes affecting our daily commerce.

And finally, a special thanks to you, our faithful readers. We rely on you, too, to inform us, to challenge us, and to inspire us. Let us know about you and your business and how we can serve you better.

So congratulations to all of us at Tea & Coffee Trade Journal...Now back to work, quick, quick.
