JD Ney, who previously served with Bodyshop Magazines’ sister publications Jobber News and Service Station & Garage Management, has taken on the role of Bodyshop Magazine editor starting with the April issue.
While at Jobber News and SSGM as assistant editor, Ney received a silver Kenneth R. Wilson Award — regarded as the highest business writing awards in Canada. The appointment was made by Bodyshop Magazine publisher Andrew Ross.
Ney replaces Cindy MacDonald who has moved to other duties with the Business Information Group, Bodyshop’s parent company.
“I am certainly grateful for Cindy’s contributions to Bodyshop over the past several years, and particularly over the past year,” says publisher Andrew Ross. “Her time here has had a lasting impact on the magazine and the industry.
“However, I’m very pleased to have someone of JD’s calibre take on the editorial role. He has a great automotive background, a love for the industry, and did great work for us in the past.”
“I’m very excited to be given the opportunity to work inthe vibrant collision repair industry,” says Ney. “It is also a fantastic time to be joining a motivated team at Bodyshop Magazine, and I look forward to learning the intricacies of this vital service channel.”
