CommsDay appoints new editor

Simon Dux is set to take the helm at CommsDay as Geoff Long steps down.

The announcement:


Geoff Long is to leave his post of CommsDay chief editor for the Royal Australian Navy and will be replaced next week by Simon Dux, a former editor with Total Telecom and Communications Week International.

After seven years with CommsDay in a full time role and an association with the publication dating back to the early 2000s, Geoff is moving to a senior public affairs role at the RAN.

Simon has a background in telecommunications journalism and public affairs dating back to 1992. He has spent most of his working career in the UK, most recently a 13- year stint at BT. In various roles there, he was the head of BT’s internal employee communications, the head of comms for the CTO as well as the head of wholesale and technical media relations.

Prior to this, Simon spent over ten years in telecom journalism, culminating as executive editor of Total Telecom at EMAP. This grew out of Communications Week International. He was previously the editor of Communicate, the UK’s dominant telecom magazine in the late 90s.

CommsDay is regarded as the telecom industry bible of Australia and NZ. Nearly 10,000 telecom execs and stakeholders read it on a daily basis. It was founded in 1994 by Grahame Lynch.
