Last month, we reported on the departure of Johann Wiesböck from Elektronik Praxis, due to his retirement. So we were delighted to hear that Maria Beyer-Fistrich, previously Deputy Editor-in-Chief at Elektronik Praxis will be taking over as the New Editor-in-Chief.

The publication has seen a number of recent editorial changes, and we were sad to hear that power electronics expert Gerd Kucera has also retired this year.

Following Gerd’s retirement, Elektronik Praxis has also welcomed industry expert Caspar Grote back to the team. Casper was previously Editor at Elektronik Praxis in the late 90’s before exploring new ventures with publishing house WEKA FACHMEDIEN and more recently at AMS Technologies AG. Casper will be responsible for a vast subject area including: power electronics, industrial electronics, automation, electric motors, drives, drives electronics and PCB design tools.

We wish both Maria and Casper the best of luck in their new roles and look forward to working with them.
