David Maloney, currently chief editor of DC Velocity and editor at large of CSCMP's Supply Chain Quarterly, will assume the role of editorial director of both Supply Chain Quarterly and DC Velocity on March 1, 2018.
Maloney has been a journalist for more than 30 years and has been with DC Velocity since April of 2004. He became its chief editor in January 2015. Prior to joining DC Velocity, Maloney was senior editor for Modern Materials Handling, where he reported on distribution and supply chain operations. Maloney also has extensive experience as a broadcast journalist. Before writing for supply chain publications, he was a journalist, television producer, and director in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
"Dave is the consummate professional and has brought wise and steady guidance and many beneficial changes to DC Velocity's editorial content and operations," said Group Editorial Director Mitch Mac Donald, president and CEO of AGiLE Business Media LLC, which publishes The Quarterly in partnership with the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals. "We can rightfully expect the same as he adds Supply Chain Quarterly to his plate."
Current Supply Chain Quarterly Editor Toby Gooley will retire from her position on March 1 after 30 years covering the logistics and supply chain markets. "Since the brand's 2007 launch, Toby has devoted herself to making Supply Chain Quarterly the leading journal of thought leadership in the supply chain profession and to ensuring that it meets the highest standards of editorial quality," Mac Donald said. "We congratulate Toby on her well-deserved retirement."
Effective March 1, Susan Lacefield, who has also been with Supply Chain Quarterly since its launch, will advance to the position of executive editor. Lacefield began her editorial career as an assistant editor at Supply Chain Management Review in 1999. She will have principal responsibility for selecting, developing, and editing Supply Chain Quarterly's print and online content. "Susan has been a business journalist covering supply chain topics almost as long as the term has been around," said Mac Donald. "Her considerable subject-matter expertise and business media acumen makes her uniquely qualified for this important role at The Quarterly."
Additionally Diane Rand, currently associate editor for DC Velocity, will add managing editor of Supply Chain Quarterly to her responsibilities. She brings considerable print and digital production and organizational skills to the task ahead, says Mac Donald.
