Welcoming Sophie Barrett to team Lanyrd

Today we have a very special announcement (and for once, it's not a new feature!) We would like to welcome the super-wonderful Sophie Barrett to the Lanyrd team.

Until now, Lanyrd has been just two people. Sophie brings us up to three, and introduces a wealth of conference and organisational knowledge to our fledgling company.

As a project manager at Clearleft and an organiser of their dConstruct, UX London and Ampersand events, Sophie has first-hand experience of the challenges involved in running a top-class conference.

She'll be helping us grow both the site and the company, and will also act as the product manager for our forthcoming suite of tools for event organisers.

Sophie starts with us in July; we can't wait to have her onboard. We have a ton of exciting plans for Lanyrd, and we'll be hiring for other positions shortly — watch this space!

Sorry to see you go Sophie, but congrats on joining such an exciting venture. I'm sure you'll look after Nat and Simon as well as you looked after us ;-)

Met Sophie recently @ampersandconf — she did one hell of a job organising it, so glad to hear we'll be neighbours soon :)
