Announcements: Stephen Pulvirent Rejoins As Managing Editor
This is a declaration I am amazingly lowered and pleased to make. Starting at today, Mr. Stephen J. Pulvirent gets back to HODINKEE. He gets back with two years of involvement with one of the world’s driving business news associations, Bloomberg, where he filled in as partner proofreader and a standard TV visitor. All the more as of late, he filled in as chief computerized proofreader of Surface magazine, perhaps the main plan titles in the United States. Why I am so eager to welcome Stephen back to HODINKEE? Stephen was this current company’s absolute first worker, and it was with his assistance that the meaningful venture I started from a desk area at UBS and underlying the bistro of the Columbia School of Journalism became a business. More than that, HODINKEE became what it is today.
It was during Stephen’s time that we dispatched our first joint efforts with Drake’s of London. It was during Stephen’s time at HODINKEE that we shot our first scenes of Three on Three , Reference Points , and, indeed, Talking Watches . It was during Stephen’s time that HODINKEE was named one of Time Magazine’s 50 Best Websites, and the New York Times considered me the High Priest of Horology. So when Stephen left HODINKEE for Bloomberg in the mid year of 2014, we were miserable to see him go, yet we regarded his choice and consistently remained friendly.
While Stephen was sharpening his abilities at Bloomberg and Surface, we kept on pushing forward as well. We dispatched a few new product offerings, re-dispatched the HODINKEE Shop, recruited a modest bunch of top-level columnists (Cara, Jack, and Arthur, for instance), and, obviously, the previous spring we converged with Kevin Rose’s North Technologies, the designers of Watchville. Today, both HODINKEE and Stephen, two years the savvier, unite once again.
Stephen was fundamental in setting up the Drake’s/HODINKEE relationship.
Stephen will accept the part of Managing Editor, directing every day publication stream. He will likewise be our Director of Operations, as somebody who is personally acquainted with the center standards of who we are as a business. He will attempt to make the discussion between our innovation group (indeed, we have one, and it’s amazing) and the publication group perpetually liquid. Furthermore, on the subject of article, hope to see a portion of that old fashioned ‘Dink magic.
The supreme Mr. Forster? He’s not going anyplace, and will expect the part of Editor-in-Chief, zeroing in additional on essential activities for our publication yield. Along these lines, envision the most awesome aspect HODINKEE from today, in addition to the most awesome aspect HODINKEE from yesterday, combined with an elite innovation group whose objective is to make getting to that content ever simpler and more delightful. Correct, that is the HODINKEE of tomorrow. What’s more, that, I believe, is very exciting.
