New editor for MPA

by BN28 Oct 2011

Key Media is pleased to announce Kevin Eddy has been appointed the new editor of Mortgage Professional Australia (MPA) magazine.

Eddy brings a wealth of experience as an editor and journalist particularly in the business and personal finance fields, both in Australia and the UK where he was editor of Chartered Secretary magazine. Most recently Eddy has served as online editor for MPA’s sister magazine Your Investment Property, as well as stints writing for Key Media publications Australian Broker, Your Money Magazine and Your Mortgage.

Departing editor Barney McCarthy has presided over a number of significant changes to MPA including a major redesign, the introduction of new sections incorporating multimedia content, business statistics and property market trends, and the addition of key interviews with industry leaders.

MPA has also continued to lead the market in delivering insightful news and analysis, big cover stories and annual surveys such as the prestigious Top 100 Broker List, which both profile top performers and provide a unique snapshot of an industry that is continually evolving.

On Eddy’s appointment, Key Media publishing director Justin Kennedy said, “Barney McCarthy has been fantastic as MPA’s editor. His commitment to MPA through a period of significant change sees him leaving this highly-read industry magazine much stronger for his involvement.”

“With Kevin taking the reins, we will be introducing a range of new initiatives and we’re extremely confident that MPA will continue to deliver valuable content. We feel it’s going to be an exciting time for this market-leading brand.”

Eddy will officially commence as editor on 8 November.
