BMW teams up with Italian styling gurus at Pininfarina for slick new coupe
Tom Evans to leave MSN Cars
Tom Evans, the managing editor of MSN Cars, has recently been promoted to head up all of MSN UK's channels group. This means that MSN Cars is now looking for a new managing editor to lead it.
"I've had a wonderful time running MSN Cars for the past eight years," says Tom.
"Having come from the internet side of things, I've really enjoyed getting involved in the important business that is the car world - and working here in particular has given me a fascinating vantage point abreast of three vast industries: technology, media, and motor."
"I'm pleased to be leaving the channel in a strong position in terms of popularity, revenue, and profitability - as well as a number of other metrics which we tend to obsess over. I hope to stay in touch with the car industry and still drive some cool cars - assuming the next guy or girl will let me!"
"I would like to thank all the great people who've worked for MSN Cars over these past years, including of course our present team of Ian Dickson, Steve Walker, and Jamie Cullen at HQ - and our colleagues Peter Burgess, Richard Aucock, CJ Hubbard, and Sean Carson at our primary supplying agency, Motoring Research."
"And of course thanks to all our friends in the public-relations world too at all the car manufacturers. They have all been very kind to us, and great to see that they all take the online world very seriously now."
Microsoft is now actively recruiting for Tom's successor. This is a full time role based in the company's offices in London, SW1. MSN Cars will be the primary focus of the new role, though previous experience of personal finance and/or technology would be a bonus (though not obligatory) as the role also involves overseeing sister channels MSN Money and MSN Tech & Gadgets.
