[This post has been updated] Max Fawcett will soon be transitioning over the mountains to take over as editor-in-chief of Vancouver magazine. Fawcett is a native of Vancouver who has been editor of Alberta Oil of Calgary and, before that, managing editor and Calgary bureau chief of Alberta Venture. His first day at Vancouver will be November 16.

As a writer, he has been published in The Walrus, Hazlitt, Eighteen Bridges, BCBusiness, the Globe and Mail, the National Post, the Toronto Star, Avenue Magazine, THIS Magazine, and Corporate Knights Magazine. He was also a past editor of His personal website self-describes him as 
"a recovering political hack who likes brussel sprouts and interesting facial hair, drinks his coffee black and his whiskey straight, and still believes in the virtues of the serial comma, CP style notwithstanding."
Fawcett replaces John Burns, who left the position July 24. One of the big challenges for the new editor will be to helm the planned redesign of Vancouver, effective with its March 2016 issue.
