This is my last issue of Ground Engineering.In seeking new challenges I will be leaving a job and an industry that I know and love.
I am handing over the editorship to Max Soudain, who joined GE from industry nearly four years ago and who has been deputy editor for two years.
I leave with the satisfaction of knowing that GE is in good shape both editorially and commercially - and I have every confidence that it will continue to improve under Max's stewardship. (If you are a young engineer with ambitions to write and seek a potential fast-track to the heart of the geotechnical community, you might be interested in the GE reporter's job advertised in this issue! ).
I would like to thank everyone in the geotechnical community who has contributed - in whatever capacity - to GE during my 11 years here. I have met many interesting and brilliant people, seen and learnt about many fantastic and inspiring engineering innovations and made many good friends. I will undoubtedly miss all of these things.
Wishing you and Ground Engineering every success for the future, Paul Wheeler, editor
