SINGAPORE (May 14): Being editor of The Edge Singapore has been one of the best experiences of my life. And, like all good things, it has come to an end. After closing this issue, I will hand over the baton to Michelle Teo, currently one of our two associate editors. With the help and support of the existing editorial crew — including Chan Chao Peh, our other associate editor, who is being appointed executive editor — Michelle will work to take this newspaper to new heights. I will take on the more modest role of editor-at-large.

A total of 399 issues of The Edge Singapore have been published during my time as editor. Over the eight-year period, we chronicled the countless triumphs and defeats of the most widely followed companies in the market and the people who run them. We followed just about every major market trend, from the massive quantitative easing after the US subprime crisis to the disruption of entire industries wrought by technology.
