Editor A+D, News Make a Comment

AUCKLAND, Tuesday: The Magazine Publishers Association has appointed Sally Duggan as executive director, taking over the role from Pip Elliott, who left in December. 

Duggan has three decades experience in the magazine industry as editor and publisher of a number of titles and digital media. Most recently she was editor on NZ House & Garden.

MPA chairman James Frankham said: “Working with administration and communications manager Jessica Malcolm, Duggan’s role will be to bring MPA’s mission to life, celebrating the inspiration and effectiveness of magazines, and showcasing the industry’s rich variety of beyond-the-page innovations in mobile, events, online and video. 

“Sally is the perfect fit for the role, given the current landscape of change in the magazine industry.

“As a hands-on senior creative, Sally understands these changes and opportunities better than most. And as a former board member of the MPA, she has a unique appreciation of the inner workings of both the organisation and the concerns of publishers.”
