“After nearly 10 years working on Healthy Food Guide, this is a very satisfying next step for me”, says Bezzant. “I’ve loved every minute of Healthy Food Guide and it has been a great thrill to see how it has made such a positive impact on people’s lives. And now this is a chance to stretch my creative and intellectual abilities, to use what I’ve learned – especially about connecting with readers – to help guide our editors and keep improving our magazine brands, as well as develop new areas of content in the digital and video areas.
“It will give me more opportunity to represent HFG in the media and at speaking engagements, and to explore some of the wider and deeper issues around food, health and environment, where I think we can really have an influence.”
“We’re thrilled Niki is taking on the challenge of this new role,” says Healthy Life Media general manager Pip Mehrtens. “I hope you will join me in congratulating her on this thoroughly deserved promotion. She has played a key role in the success of Healthy Food Guide, and her experience and expertise will be extremely valuable to our other brands. We’ll also be able to better leverage her skills as we continue to expand into new content and media platforms.”
