NEW YORK, NY -- Light Reading (www.lightreading.com), the market-leading online community for the global communications sector, has appointed Craig Matsumoto as Editor-in-Chief for its expanding portfolio of digital publications and communities.

Matsumoto was previously the Managing Editor at Light Reading, where he worked from late 2002 until mid-2013. He re-joins Light Reading after spending more than three years at SDxCentral.

San Jose, Calif.-based Matsumoto has overall editorial responsibility for the Light Reading group's digital properties which, in addition to Light Reading, also include Enterprise Cloud News (www.enterprisecloudnews.com), Telecoms.com (http://telecoms.com), Telco Transformation (www.telcotransformation.com), UBB2020 (www.ubb2020.com) and Connecting Africa (www.connectingafrica.com), with further new launches planned for the coming months.

"It's great to be back at Light Reading, but it's not as if I'll be jumping into the same routine. It's a world of clouds and software and the Internet of Things now -- and I'm looking forward to helping readers navigate all these simultaneous disruptions," says Matsumoto.

"It's great to have Craig back on board as we expand the business and secure the very best editorial talent," notes Light Reading's Founder and CEO Steve Saunders. "Craig has a well-deserved reputation as being one of the best editors in the communications industry and he also just happens to be a great guy too. This a very exciting coup for Light Reading."

Matsumoto takes over from UK-based Ray Le Maistre, who, after four years as Editor-in-Chief, takes on a new role as Light Reading's International Group Editor, with prime responsibility for editorial operations beyond the Americas.

Matsumoto is just one of a number of new editorial hires made by Light Reading in 2017: In January experienced IT industry editor Scott Ferguson joined as Co-Editor of Enterprise Cloud News, which has just launched, while former InformationWeek Executive Editor Curtis Franklin joined as Security Editor and will lead the upcoming launch of a dedicated network security digital community.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
