More Fresh Starts at The Fix
We're pleased to announce a new Executive Editor and a new (but familiar) columnist.
In our recent update on the progress of The Fix's mission to address addiction and recovery with openness and dedication, we promised to keep you posted on the continuing development of our team. Today we have news on that front.
Anna David, who has served as our indefatigable Executive Editor since before our launch in March 2011, is now stepping out of that role. Anna's part in the conception and development of The Fix has been huge—including making our important Sober Living section the popular success it has been; assigning and editing large numbers of feature stories; writing prolifically herself; representing us in the recovery community—especially in LA, where she lives—and contributing to the site in countless other ways. We want to thank her for everything she’s done—but we're glad to say that she’s not going far! Anna now becomes The Fix's newest columnist, focusing on issues around the sober life and community, and you can look forward to reading her very first column here in just a few days' time.
We're also delighted to welcome today our new Executive Editor, William Georgiades. William's impressive track record includes writing for major publications like The Los Angeles Times, The Times of London and New York magazine, as well as editorial roles for Esquire, Black Book and The New York Post—plus a spell as Managing Editor of the Grapevine. He's now running our Sober Living section, and will operate as overall number two to Editorial Director Will Godfrey. We're sure he will be a key figure in The Fix's next chapter.
Finally, a warm welcome to our new Helpline Associate, Sam Vukoye, who will help us to expand our service and find the right treatment options for more people in crisis then ever.
