The Forbes Phoenix is saying farewell to outgoing Editor Alexandria (Lexy) Irvine and hello to new editor, Dane Millerd.
Phoenix Group of Newspapers Director Josh Matic had high praise for former Editor Alexandria, saying she was outstanding and would be a real loss to the company. “Lexy was fantastic and really stepped up with engaging and interesting local content which made the paper the impressive product it is today,” said Josh.
“We will miss her and thank her for all her efforts. We wish her all the best in her future endeavours. Incoming Editor Dane Millerd is no stranger to Forbes having lived in the area for seven years, he also brings 20 years of international multimedia and film experience to the role,” said Josh, continuing, “Dane is a great addition to our organisation having worked in every sphere in the media for over two decades. He has worked for some of the biggest media organisations around and we are rapt to have him on board,” Josh said.
“He takes over from Lexy from 11 February and given his knowledge and relationships in Forbes, I have no doubt the paper is in good hands.”
