Bravo, I Say! Bravo!
Ah, there’s just no easy way to say this: FS Senior Editor Paul Barbagallo is moving on. He recently relocated to Washington, D.C., to take an editorial position in the development office of a nonprofit organization. (Go figure …)
Paul has been an incredible resource for FS from even before the magazine had a name. He was an associate editor in the Target Marketing Group here at North American Publishing for a few years before our publisher had even approached the company with an idea for a strategy guide for nonprofit development professionals. I’m sure many of you spoke to Paul long before I was hired as editor-in-chief.
He’s been a tireless advocate, inexhaustible staff member and exuberant public persona for FundRaising Success, as well as a friend and partner in crime to me. I hope you’ll join me in wishing him the best.
Stepping into Paul’s place will be Abny Santicola. She has been an assistant editor for FS and the rest of the TM Group for just more than a year. Prior to that, she was a copy editor for the Tri-County Record, a semi-weekly newspaper in Phoenixville, Pa. She was an editorial intern with the Philadelphia Weekly newspaper and an editor for the Temple Times. She has a master’s degree in journalism from Temple University.
Ab is a true professional and a joy to work with, as I’m sure you’ll all find out as you meet and begin to interact with her in her new role at FS.
