The long term editor of Delfi Monika Garbačiauskaitė-Budrienė has decided to relinquish the office of chief editor and focus on journalistic and creative work, the leadership of the Delfi editorial office is to go to the deputy chief editor and business news editor, also long term Delfi journalist Rasa Lukaitytė-Vnarauskienė.
"Leading an editorial office of such scale and high standard requires more energy and administrative work than could appear at first glance.
It takes away time from journalistic work, which is dear and important to me, thus I have decided to reorganise my professional priorities. I will continue to cooperate with the Delfi editorial office, it is the most wonderful and successful creation of my journalistic career. I worked here from day one and I am confident in this news portal, its dedicated people. New and different opportunities are opening up for me personally," M. Garbačiauskaitė-Budrienė said.
"I am thankful for the trust granted me and also for the great challenge. We are a united team of professionals, which has been leading the market for years. I am certain that we will continue on this path, presenting readers and watchers even more valuable and interesting content," R. Lukaitytė-Vnarauskienė said.
Delfi director Vytautas Benokraitis states that the changes will ensure the continuity of the editorial office's work.
"Monika is a veteran and highly valued employee of Delfi, who has had a great influence on us becoming what we are. I wish her the best of luck in her new projects and am glad that she will continue to be a part of Delfi. At the same time I have no doubt that upon taking the steering wheel of the editorial office, Rasa will not only ensure the continuity of Delfi, but will also grant new creative impulses.
The editorial office raises itself the goal to not only provide objective and tested information, but also a platform of quality discussion for all topics of interest to the public. We also understand that our duty as a leading internet news portal is to create good initiatives, rally various public groups, encourage interesting and valuable discussions," V. Benokraitis said.
