I also worked as 2CGaming’s managing editor maintaining our style guide, implementing reprint corrections, and copy editing our products. What I didn't proofread and copy edit, I managed an external team of editorial professionals to handle, reviewing their marks before publication and providing feedback for improvement.

As the Managing Editor, I was accountable for a range of responsibilities that ensured the ongoing creation and execution of our product plan. I evaluated the title plan based on selling cycles and I recommended development actions from the ideation to the publication of a product. I planned monthly and quarterly product reviews and gathered data for evaluation, and turned complicated data into easily digestible formats. I set all of our group’s products up in the system, prioritizing accuracy at all times. At all stages of development, I determined the need for communication across departments (sales, inventory, marketing, editorial, production, creative) and often initiated those communications. I served as a liaison between our department and other departments, as well as facilitated teamwork within our department. I reviewed financial product forms for accuracy and performance standards. I assisted the group in preparing for and improving our tri-annual Sales Conference, especially by generating clear expectations and deadlines and keeping everyone on track. I organized and managed multiple projects and an average of 150–200 SKUs simultaneously. I aligned and directed processes across two teams, overcoming geographical and cultural differences on a regular basis.
