Martin Read is managing editor of FM World. He has more than twenty years’ experience in B2B publishing. As well as a full range of editorial workflow skills, from research and subbing to feature and report writing, he has an aptitude for the editor’s ambassadorial role. Currently, he is concentrating on editorial project management skills having spent two years developing business for one of the country’s leading (yet somehow criminally unsung) small business publishers. This has included writing tenders and working with some of the country’s largest membership organisations.
As well as magazine experience, Martin has chaired roundtable meetings, hosted awards dinners and developed presentations. He has also developed the editorial aspect of two new magazine launches and helped manage the transition of titles from one publisher to another (a process that can get quite messy, let me tell you).
