Our congratulations to Mark Pack – and, alas, a farewell to him

Mark PackCongratulations to my Co-Editor at Lib Dem Voice, Mark Pack, on his appointment as associate director at Blue Rubicon, ‘a consultancy that leads strategic thinking in corporate, financial, brand and behaviour change communications’. He departs MHP Communications, where he’s been since leaving the Lib Dems in 2009, at the beginning of March. In addition, he has recently been appointed a Visiting Lecturer at City University in the Journalism Department.

Add these professional activities to his extensive political campaigning — did you know he’s written a book on the subject, by the way? — and Mark’s made the decision to step aside from Lib Dem Voice at the end of February. Totally understandable from his point of view, totally gutting from ours.

Mark was, with Rob Fenwick as founding editor, the founding spirit of this site way back in 2006. It won’t be quite the same without him, but naturally the LDV editorial collective wish him the very best for all his endeavours. I’m sure he’ll arrive at the optimal work/work balance sooner or later…

Of course if you want to keep up with his thoughts on the Lib Dems, then you can do so over at his own blog and in his monthly email newsletter.

Thank you, Mark, for helping make the site what it is today.

* Stephen Tall is Co-Editor of Liberal Democrat Voice, and editor of the 2013 publication, The Coalition and Beyond: Liberal Reforms for the Decade Ahead. He is also a Research Associate for the liberal think-tank CentreForum and writes at his own site, The Collected Stephen Tall.

  • Yes, its congratulations and I am sure that whilst its a loss toLDV, Mark will also see that it is an opportunity for someone else to take on and thus we continue to develop and improve as a Party.
    Lets be positive as we wish Mark well.

  • Congratulations, Mark and I agree with the universal sentiment that you will be missed…
