Bethan Grylls will be joining the New Electronics team at the beginning of this year, as their latest deputy editor.

Bethan will make a contribution to all areas within the magazine, but will have a main focus on strengthening New Electronics’ web and social media presence.

This news is received with a bittersweet reaction, as it has also been announced that Graham Pitcher, consulting editor of New Electronics, will retire at the end of March in 2018. We will all miss Graham, who has been a mainstay of the UK electronics media for many years. We’re delighted, however, that his replacement will be Neil Tyler.

We wish them all good luck in their new roles and a happy retirement for Graham.
