CanGeo loses EIC Rick Boychuk;
McKelvie goes to New Internationalist

Rick Boychuk has been quick to say that it was his choice to leave as Editor-in-Chief of Canadian Geographic after 13 years. But he was the last of the original management and senior executive team in place when André Préfontaine took over as publisher in 2006. (A lot of those departures have been dealt with in previous posts such as this one.)

Ian McKelvie, who was director of marketing for Canada's National History Society, publishers of The Beaver and Kayak, has left to become publisher of the New Internationalist, where he was circulation director at one time. McKelvie, who was one of the first of the management team at Canadian Geographic to be shown the door (see item above), is one of the country's best and most creative circulation people.
