Louise Meers will be stepping into a managing editor role at K-Zone, having been the brand’s deputy editor for the past year.

Findlay signs on the dotted line with 11 years of publishing experience under his belt, including a five year stint as K-Zone editor, where he led the transition of the mag from solely print to an integrated brand, featuring the new content channel K-Zone TV.
