It is with great sadness and gratitude that Simon & Schuster Australia bids farewell to Publishing Services Manager, Ed Petrie this week.
Ed has been a vital part of the Simon & Schuster team since 2009 and has a wealth of experience that can be matched by very few in the industry. Over the last 35 years he has witnessed incredible change and has never faltered, always ready for the next challenge and looking for new ways to make things better. Ed’s professionalism, can-do attitude, attention to detail, knowledge, passion for achieving the very best results, creativity and great sense of humour have made a large and invaluable contribution to the growth and achievements of Simon & Schuster.
Ed will be leaving Simon & Schuster to enjoy a new life in Far North Queensland with his partner Sandra and, while we are very sad to see him go, we wish him the very best of luck with his new adventure.
