Change is the only constant and so it is with the Journal of Neurointerventional Surgery (JNIS). Last month, Rob Tarr stepped down as Editor-in-Chief after seven-and-a-half years. His tenure bore witness to, and largely established, critical milestones. The journal quickly became indexed and has steadily climbed the impact factor ladder. More importantly, JNIS has become the forum for the field's most significant clinical and scientific work. While this is in part the culmination of the efforts of our authors, reviewers, and associate editors, it is also the byproduct of Rob's dedication and vision. I have long admired the grace and perseverance of Rob's leadership. As a tribute to him and as a means of maintaining his counsel, the editorial board recently bestowed upon him the title of Emeritus Editor. To say that I have big shoes to fill as the new Editor-in-Chief is putting it mildly.
