I know, I know, we don't post for ages and then three come along at once. It's proving to be quite a week here, and I think it's not going to get much better than today. I'm thrilled to be announcing two major new appointments to Ingenta's US business development teams:

  • Rebecca Lenzini has joined us as Director of Business Development, Publisher Services
  • Jeff Downing will shortly be joining us as Manager, Library Relations
Those of you in the information industry may well recognise one or both of these names. Becky is well-known as president of The Charleston Company, which publishes The Charleston Advisor and organises the annual Charleston conference and Fiesole retreat (don't worry, Becky will be continuing her role with The Charleston Company alongside her role with us). Jeff is coming to us from Amigos Library Services where his role has included sales and marketing responsibilities for scholarly aggregation databases including BioOne.

I've posted press releases about these appointments on our website (Jeff's, Becky's), if you want to read all the details. As you can probably tell, I'm very excited to be welcoming two such stellar individuals to the Ingenta team. 2008 is looking good so far!
