"We are delighted to have Abdul join us as editor of PC Retail," commented managing editor, Lisa Foster. "His strong background in B2B publishing and knowledge of the IT and computing sector mean he is perfect for the role.

"2007 was a exceptional year for PC Retail, with the magazine going from strength to strength since it incorporated CTO, and the new website and daily news service have welcomed by the market.

"2008 looks set to be just as exciting, with more innovations planned for the magazine and web­site, plus the launch of the PC Retail Awards in March, he will play a key role in the progression of the brand."
