First to join the team this year, Ebony Lyon took on the role of Sales Director at ILM in July 2021. Ebony has a wealth of experience in both the B2B and consumer environments and has managed media brands in the leather industry for over seven years.

Also joining the team is Tom Hogarth as Deputy Editor. Coming from a background of technical B2B journalism, with a focus on digital content, Tom will help drive the website and magazine (print/digital) forward as the leading source for industry news, legislative updates, new technology and technical analysis.

Martin Ricker, ILM Content Director, commented: “I’m delighted to welcome Tom and Ebony to the International Leather Maker editorial and commercial team. Both of them join us with previous experience in the field of B2B media.”

“I look forward to introducing them to members of the international leather industry as live industry events begin to start up again after the pandemic. Their previous experience and skillsets will help ILM to continue to deliver engaging and premium industry content across all of its multi-media platforms and keep the industry well informed.”
