Large Format Review, the online publication focused on the wide and super-wide format digital printing business, has appointed Abi Ricketts as Editor. In this new role, she will be responsible for bringing the latest product and industry news from all areas of the large format printing market, as well as developing the publication to ensure it remains at the forefront of the industry.
With nearly 15 years experience in copywriting and all other aspects of PR and communications, Abi most recently worked at JGC marketing consultancy, providing PR and marketing support for several well-known companies in the large format printing industry including coated media manufacturer, InteliCoat (formerly Rexam Graphics) and Colourgen, a leading distributor in the market.
Abi has strong organisational skills and has also held several in-house communications positions, including European PR Director at Newbridge Networks (subsequently acquired by Alcatel; now Alcatel-Lucent) where she was responsible for developing and implementing pan-European PR strategies. She was also in charge of external communication relating to the acquisition of Newbridge Networks by Alcatel.
She comments, “I am really looking forward to maximising the potential of LFR. In addition to ensuring the large format industry continues to be furnished with relevant, timely news, I will focus on developing unique content for the LFR readership.”
