December 12th 2022. Duncan White Group Editorial Advisor for MDM Publishing Ltd will be leaving his role after almost a decade on December 31st 2022. Duncan commented “I want to reflect on the incredible journey I have been on with MDM Publishing Ltd. I am forever grateful to Mark Seton and Dave Staddon for the wonderful opportunities they afforded me, and the fantastic adventure we have been on together. However, after editing 116 issues I feel the time is right to bid farewell to the team and look at new challenges and opportunities.
Special thanks to Mark Bathard for sharing his knowledge and experience of the industry – Bonzo you are a legend. Thanks must also go to Neil Spinney, Richard Parsons, Mike Coward, Gavin Harrison and Derek Smith for providing me with so many wonderful memories. Last but by no means least; the fantastic editorial team; Neil Bibby, Neil Wallington and Phil Martin – from whom I have learnt so much. I am sure our paths will cross again.” Dave Staddon Co-Publisher and Director at MDM added, “Duncan has been an integral part of the MDM Publishing team for close to ten years. His drive and enthusiasm for the subject have pushed our editorial standards to the pinnacle of fire safety publishing. Duncan’s organisational skills and ability to work to strict deadlines are remarkable. My co-publisher Mark Seton and I wish Duncan the very best of health and happiness in whatever he decides to tackle next. MDM will miss Duncan’s contributions but we look forward to taking the business forward and building on the solid foundations that Duncan has helped the entire team at MDM Publishing establish.”
