Anne Ward – Managing Director – hurrah!

We had a big Newspaper Club meeting and Christmas Dinner on Friday. Lots of exciting plans were discussed and Ben and I cried bitter tears at not getting Christmas bonuses, unlike everyone else, just because we never do any work whereas they do.

But the major event, for me, was that we announced Anne Ward’s elevation from Customer Service Supremo to Managing Director – in recognition of the fact that she is, basically, managing and directing the company.

There are lots of things to be proud of with Newspaper Club – printing our millionth paper, all the great papers people make, Tom’s coding genius – but the best bit for me has been to see Anne just take over and turn our silly idea into a brilliant business. Multiple times a week the @newspaperclub feed fills up with people saying great things about Anne and her team. It’s a joy to see. So, huge congratulations to Anne, and can we have Christmases bonuses next year please?
