Though nothing official has been released, publishers of Desktop Engineering have confirmed that Anthony (Tony) Lockwood is leaving his post and the magazine is looking for an new editor-in-chief.
Tony, a veteran of DE of 12 years, will be seeking " less stress and a different path," according to Steve Robbins, CEO and acting executive director. He will be employed part time by DE for an unspecified time.
Jonathan Gourlay is currently the top editorial contact for the magazine, but the company expects to announce some new hires within a few days.
Sara Ferris, once editor-in-chief of Cadalyst, joins DE as a "beat writer" covering rapid prototyping, reverse engineering and MCAD. Doug Barney will join in a similar position to cover IT technologies.
