I have announced today to NLA staff that I have decided to retire from my role as Managing Director and will be leaving the company in the spring of 2016.
NLA media access is a great business, with a highly talented management team and dedicated staff, which has evolved rapidly in the last 8 years. The company has achieved its core mission of supporting journalism, by increasing the revenues paid to publishers every year - doubling them since 2007 – and through developing innovative licensing and database services for our media monitoring clients.
I have decided that 2016 will be a good time for me to retire, which I do with a great sense of pride in the business and the people who drive it forward, knowing that NLA media access has a clear strategy and is in great shape to grow and meet the challenges of the future.
A search for my successor is now in progress and I expect that an appointment will be made later this year or early in 2016.
