It has been one great journey over nearly 9 years, but the time has come.
Effective immediately, I, Matt Halfhill, will be stepping down as the Editor-In-Chief of NiceKicks.com.
A little over six years ago in August of 2008, a young, talented, and hungry man by the name of George Kiel III stepped into my office interviewing for a position as a writer at NiceKicks.com. Six years of hard work, six years of dedication, and six years of bringing new things to the world of sneakers, it is with great pleasure that I hand over the keys and the role of Editor-In-Chief to George Kiel III.
While I had a very short lived college career, my greatest takeaway from all my classes (and one I love sharing with other entrepreneurs) was a lecture stressing the importance of investing into your team. There IS in fact an “I” in team – Invest in your team.
Perhaps a little more studying and practice in writing classes would allow me to articulate just how excited I am for what the future holds for Nice Kicks under the editorial leadership and direction of George.
Thank you everyone of Nice Kicks Nation for all the support over the years.
The best is yet to come.
