Congratulations to Dan Smith

Kenro Industries has just announced that Dan Smith, until recently the curator of FP Geeks and moderator of its forum, has been appointed as their new Director of Social Media. Kenro are the US distributor for a number of pen brands, including Aurora, Montegrappa, Omas, and Sheaffer, and Dan will be responsible for building their social media presence and running the Kenro Pens blog.

I have a lot of respect for Dan. He did amazing work in building and growing FPG and his industry blog was invaluable, his video reviews have the best production quality of anything available in the FP community, and his pen show blogs gave many people the chance to vicariously experience something really wonderful. I’m grateful for everything he’s contributed to the community and am thrilled that he’s finally going to be able to earn an income from his passion.

Congratulations, Dan, and best of luck!
