16 Feb The Roar says a fond farewell to Managing Editor, Patrick Effeney
It’s with a heavy heart that we bid farewell to our longtime (and only mildly hirsute) Managing Editor, Patrick ‘Paddy’ Effeney, this Friday. After three years in The Roar’s hot-seat, Paddy is moving on to a new position in Australia’s digital stratosphere.
In his place, we’re thrilled to announce the promotion of two of The Roar’s talented in-house editorial team. Ben Conkey and Daniel Jeffrey (henceforth known as Jeffers and Conks) will step-up into new positions – Conks as Editor and Jeffers as Assistant Editor.
In addition, Conversant Media’s Video Manager, Ryman White, has been promoted to a new position of Product Manager, where he will be driving numerous initiatives across the three Conversant Media sites (The Roar, Techly and Lost At E Minor).
We’re excited to hand the reins over to these passionate members of our team, and watch them take The Roar to the next level.
But Paddy will be missed, and not just for his enviable ping pong skills. During his time at The Roar, he has been instrumental in pushing the site forward, solidifying its position as Australia’s leading sports opinion website. Not to mention, he’s an outstanding bloke.
We wish him well in his future career.
