In July 2020 we bid a fond farewell to Mary Traynor, who is retiring as Executive Editor of the Journal of Experimental Botany, after 25 years’ service as head of the journal’s office in Lancaster. Mary joined the journal in 1995 while completing her PhD (‘Root growth in drying soil: a role for ABA?) under the supervision of Bill Davies. Bill was Editor-in-Chief of JXB from 1995 to 2007 and appointed Mary to the post of Executive Editor (then called Assistant Editor), when the previous incumbent, Sarah Blackford, decided to follow a different career path. Bill recognised that Mary’s enthusiasm for plant science and understanding of its value to society for addressing global challenges would be tremendous assets for both JXB and its parental organisation, the Society for Experimental Biology (SEB).
