BISG Appoints a new Executive Director

The Book Industry Study Group has just announced that Scott Lubeck has been appointed the new Executive Director at BISG.  Lubeck, most recently Vice President of Technology for Wolters Kluwer Health, Professional and Education, has more than thirty years of publishing industry experience and has been heavily involved in technology and in dealing with the design and implementation of digital initiatives. Lubeck has also held executive positions with Harvard Business School Publishing and Newsstand, Inc., as well as with Perseus Books Group and National Academy Press.

Michael Healy, the previous Director of BISG, left in May to lead the forthcoming Book Rights Registry, which will form after (if?) the Google Books Settlement is approved by the courts.

BISG and NISO frequently partner on industry events and initiatives.  We look forward to continuing to serve the community together and to working with Scott and wish him the best of luck throughout his transition and in his new role.
