Two Times editors have been promoted to key leadership positions in the newsroom.

Michelle Boaen Jameson is the new Life editor and Colin Dunlop will serve as presentation editor.

Jameson most recently served as assistant Life editor. A native of Vidalia, she is a graduate of Georgia Southern University and began her career at the Statesboro Herald as a photographer, earning numerous Georgia Press Association and Associated Press awards. She joined The Times in 2007 as a copy editor and page designer.

In her new role, she will oversee the paper's features department and produce the weekly Get Out entertainment guide.

"I look forward to providing our area with the best possible coverage of trends, lifestyles, religion and arts," Jameson said.

She lives in Gillsville with her husband, Sam Jameson, who is creative services manager for The Times.

"Michelle will do well in carrying forward the tradition of excellence in our lifestyle pages," said Executive Editor Mitch Clarke. "She's a talented writer and designer."

Dunlop is a Conyers native and Gainesville resident who joined The Times as a copy editor in 2009. He earned a bachelor's degree in journalism and a master of arts degree from the University of Georgia.

As presentation editor, Dunlop will oversee daily page production, manage the copy desk staff and coordinate page design with all newsroom editors and departments.

"I'm honored to have been chosen as the new presentation editor at The Times," Dunlop said. "We have a tradition of excellence here, and I look forward to meeting the challenges ahead while maintaining a traditional style that readers have come to love."

Dunlop was the chief designer on two of the paper's recent projects, the high school football preview section and the fall Harvest guide.

"Colin has a great eye for design, and he really impressed me with the way he jumped headfirst into two major projects," Clarke said. "I expect big things from him in his new role."
