Mark Wallace has been appointed as the new Executive Editor of Conservative Home.  Many readers will know Mark as an experienced campaigner and commentator.  He's been Head of Media Relations for the Institute of Directors and Campaign Director of the TaxPayers' Alliance. Mark currently blogs at CrashBangWallace, is a Senior Fellow of the TPA and sits on the Council of The Freedom Association.  He'll start work with us in roughly a month's time.

Andrew Gimson has been appointed Contributing Editor.  Andrew is the biographer of Boris Johnson, is a freelance contributor to a wide range of publications, and was parliamentary sketchwriter and Berlin correspondent for the Daily Telegraph.

Peter Hoskin and Harry Phibbs continue their work with the site.  Tim Montgomerie is staying on as an adviser to ConservativeHome, and will write a weekly blog. ConservativeHome will continue to campaign for the strong and compassionate conservatism which has inspired the site since he first set it up.

It's an honour to succeed Tim as the Editor of this site, and my debt to him as a colleague and friend is greater than I can describe.  Readers will have seen that Iain Dale is now contributing a weekly diary on Fridays, and there will be more announcements in due course.
