Best Wishes, Elisabeth! Search Engine Watch Editor Osmeloski Leaves
Elisabeth Osmeloski, editor of Search
Engine Watch, is leaving to become director of online media for the
Zonder.com Vacation Rentals site. Her last
day will be this Friday, and she has a departure announcement
Elisabeth and I worked together to get the Search Engine Watch Forums
nearly three years ago, then she
managing editor of the site in April 2006, then she
took over as
when I departed.
It was always great working with her, and one of the saddest parts of leaving
was saying goodbye to her as a work colleague.
Barry Schwartz, Chris Sherman and many of the
correspondents here at
Search Engine Land also all worked with her. We wish her all the best in her new
position, and despite it being for a start-up, we hope she’ll also find plenty
of time for the snowboarding, skiing, mountain biking, [insert adventure sport
here] activities that she loves.
Rob Kerry, known as
at the Search Engine Watch Forums, will be taking over from Elisabeth as SEW
Forums Editor. A new editor for Search Engine Watch has not been named. Kevin
Newcomb continues as news editor, and Rebecca Lieb remains in charge of the site
overall as editor-in-chief of the ClickZ network.
