Mashable taps two new top editors

Jul 20, 2016

Say hello to two new additions to Mashable's masthead: Anne-Marie Tomchak (at immediate right) will soon be UK editor there and Jerico Mandybur (far right) is the newly anointed Australia editor.

Currently finishing up at BBC News, Tomchak is already well known for launching BBC Trending.

"Dammit, the BBC has lost @AMTomchak to Mashable (congrats, by the way!)" reacts BBC World's Trushar Barot.

"Good luck in your new adventure @AMTomchak - hope @mashable have green screen bants," jokes senior audience engagement producer Ravin Sampat, sharing this gem, to which Tomchak responds, "I sense a blooper video coming on! So many cracking PTC's to choose from ...."

Meanwhile, Mandybur joins from NITV, Australia's leading media outlet for indigenous people. 

"HUGE congrats to the new @mashableAU editor - the awesome @jerico_m! Looking forward to watching you dominate," applauds Mashable's senior Real Time editor Jen Ryall.

"LET'S DO THIS," Mandybur tweets, adding a kpow! emoji for emphasis (yes, you know which one we mean!).
