Acting editor and content manager of Aesthetics, Shannon Kilgariff, said, “I have been working with Sharon for the past six years and she has been an invaluable asset to the Clinical Advisory Board, providing us with the latest industry insights and helpful ideas for progressing our content and supporting our loyal readers. I am absolutely delighted that she has accepted this position and I am looking forward to working closely with her and the rest of the CAB to further progress the brand and be the leading resource for medical aesthetic practitioners in the UK.”
Bennett said she is delighted to take the lead to support the clinical direction of Aesthetics. “I have always enjoyed working with the Aesthetics team to ensure the community stays updated with the latest innovations, news and clinical and business insights from a trusted resource. The current CAB team are all experts in their own sector and I am looking forward to progressing the journal alongside them and also the events. Shannon and I, alongside the rest of the Aesthetics editorial team, will be working on some exciting things for 2022, so stay tuned!”
