Sonja Chilcott has been named publisher of Meetings & Incentive Travel.
“It’s great to be back in the meetings world,” says Sonja, who worked at M&IT as a sales manager from 2002 to 2006.
Sonja brings over 12 years’ publishing experience, in both the consumer and business-to-business worlds, to her new role.
For the last five years, she worked as the education specialist at Maclean’s magazine. While at Maclean’s, Sonja gained invaluable experience in the worlds of print, online and editorial, and gained additional expertise working with magazines across the consumer and business-to-business spectrum.
“I have a passion for travel and the meetings world and have many friends and contacts in the industry,” says Sonja, adding that she “looks forward to reconnecting with old friends and making new ones.”
On top of that, she’s very excited about the huge growth potential for M&IT and the meetings and travel group, stemming from the commitment of the magazine’s new owners, Business Information Group, to take the publication to the next level and strengthen an already stellar brand.
Since leaving M&IT in 2006, Sonja welcomed a beautiful daughter, Prudence (now two-and-a-half) into her life, and looks forward to taking her on many family trip adventures.
