AFTER many successful years at the helm of ToolBUSINESS + HIRE Magazine, Editor Anne Hall has passed on the baton to new owners.
Anne, who will be remaining as a consultant to the magazine, will continue to work with new custodians PAL Media Limited - who already publish the leading publication in the recycling, waste and skip hire sectors in the UK and Ireland.
New editor Andrew Gold, who also edits the new owner's Skip Hire & Waste Magazine, believes the change will prove to be great news for ToolBUSINESS + HIRE customers and readers.
Andrew, who is based at the company's Hazel Grove, Stockport headquarters, said: "We'd like to pay tribute to Anne for the way she's built the title and we're looking forward to working alongside her in her new role as a consultant.
"She'll still be attending shows and playing a big part in the magazine as we look to build on her success, and give advertisers and readers some brand new and exciting options."
Resident tool expert Peter Brett will also be continuing as the face of the publication.
Editor Andrew continued: "Peter's obviously the guy everybody knows in the industry so we'll be ensuring his coverage of the sector is as informative as ever.
"We're delighted both Peter and Anne will continue to be heavily involved, and feel with our own proven magazine publishing experience we can take the magazine into the 21st century with great con dence."
Skip Hire & Waste Magazine host the annual WASTE exhibition, due to be held on Thursday July 5 at the Warwickshire Event Centre in Leamington Spa.
Although the title has changed hands, it will still focus on exactly the same things which have made it a must read in the hire and tool sectors.
Andrew said: "We'll be tweaking a few things but will still be concentrating on the tool reviews that have become part and parcel of what we do.
"Advertisers will be seeing a lot more of us as we aim to get round all our clients to visit them at their premises, and to see what we can do to drive business for them.
"We're particularly looking forward to reporting on the sector, and featuring a mix of reviews, fun and more serious news."
