New director in Western Europe

News from Region 15: Welcome Alan Formby-Jackson, sub-editor and designer at the Evening Gazette in Middlesbrough, Teesside, England, who has agreed to succeed Joe Breen as director for Region 15, Western Europe.

He has been in the newspaper industry for 13 years and was also the senior graphic artist at the Evening Chronicle in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, England, for nearly five years. Alan completed his MA in Design at the University of Teesside in 2005 and is also a moderator and blogger at visualeditors.com. He is married and has two children.

About his new position, Alan said: "I'm really pleased to be taking on this role within SND and look forward to bringing Region 15 to life. We have a relatively small number of members within the region, but we cover over 20 countries in western Europe, so hopefully I can boost the membership and try to persuade people in the area to be more pro-active members. I'm now in the process of drawing up plans for the region's future."
