After almost ten years in London managing large society owned publications, followed by another ten years in Amsterdam, I am now based in Singapore where my role is to bridge the local APAC journal portfolios with Elsevier's global organisation. With this responsibility for Elsevier’s Asia Pacific journals, I ensure that my team of publishers, from eight separate locations, deliver the best service to their societies and other journal owners, whilst setting strategic directions for increased content quality, growth in published article volume, article innovation and the international dissemination of such functional content online.
