Speciality Chemicals Magazine strengthens team and global reach

Happy New Year! Over the holiday season, there have been a lot of changes behind the scenes at Speciality Chemicals Magazine. As the magazine approaches its 40th year, we are proud to announce that TRMG has assumed responsibility for publishing the magazine from Mack-Brooks Group. TRMG was established in 1990 by Jon Fellows, Andrew Stevens and Ian Wearing and has grown to become a specialist publisher with a truly global reach.

Over the last four decades, the magazine has gone from strength to strength, providing respected content and forging a unique relationship with the industry we serve. With much excitement for this new chapter of the magazine’s life, we are re-designing to give our independent, quality business content a fresher feel. Our mission is to continue to source the best technical articles and professional features, news, interviews and comments from experts in their fields across the pharmaceutical, agrichemical, cosmetic, regulatory, material, oil and energy sectors. We will look to expand our offering and include special reports responding to trends and insights as they happen.

As the leading magazine for the global speciality and fine chemicals industry, we will continue to publish six times a year, in hard copy and digital format and to send you our bi-weekly newsletters.

The team working on Speciality Chemicals Magazine going forwards.
L-R: Charlotte Niemiec, Russell Priestley and Ben Jones.

Our new team comprises the editor, Charlotte Niemiec, and Russell Priestley, commercial manager. Charlotte graduated with an MA in Shakespeare from the University of London and, when not trekking up unpronounceable mountains, has worked across publications representing the commercial and regulatory side of chemicals, edible oils and fats, food, shipping and other industries. Russell began his longstanding career in newspapers and has since worked in advertising, hard-copy and digital publishing and social media communications across the food, health and education sectors. When not working, Russell can be found sailing and non-competitive dancing. Our North American sales consultant and avid golfer, Ben Jones, has decades of experience in the chemical publishing field and has been with the magazine since 2010.

We look forward to meeting many of you at key industry events. Meanwhile, do get in touch or send us your news – we’d love to hear from you.
