01.01.70 | Philip Jones
Former HMV chairman Sir Robin Miller has been appointed as chairman of book printer Butler Tanner & Dennis. Miller was previously chief executive and chairman of Emap and has held other positions including non-executive director of Channel 4 and non-executive chairman of music publisher Boosey & Hawkes.
Miller has taken over the role from Felix Dennis, owner of the printer, with immediate effect. Dennis will continue in the role of director and said "printing and publishing is in [Miller's] blood".
Dennis added: "I am anxious to confirm that I will remain a director on the board of BT&D as well as retaining sole ownership. My enthusiasm for the company is undiminished. Each time I open a new book made by Butler Tanner & Dennis no matter where I am in the world, my mind travels to Frome and my thoughts to the men and women whose skill and determination have provided me with the opportunity to invest in Britain’s finest colour book printer."
Kevin Sarney, managing director of Butler Tanner & Dennis, said: "I welcome the appointment of Sir Robin Miller, coming at a time when the business is developing more comprehensive and alternative services to the colour publishing market. With the media landscape rapidly changing and the arrival of wide spread digital technology, Sir Robin’s experience will further strengthen the business as we establish Butler Tanner & Dennis at the forefront of this new era."
