“[Jenny Paurys’] attention to detail was astonishing and her group was one of the most accurate in the newsroom during her tenure. As a journalist and editor, her instincts were sound and she showed a real entrepreneurship in pushing the quality of the content forward – the quality and enterprise of the group’s work took a major leap under her leadership.”
