Ruth Jones, Ingram’s director of business development, has been appointed as the new chair of the Book Industry Communication (BIC) Operational Board.
Jones will replace current chair Mark Majurey, who will step down at the beginning of September 2016.
Majurey, who is also commercial director & vice president of digital publishing at Taylor & Francis group, said the independent supply chain organisation had helped its members tackle the challenges of digital over the last five years.
“I am thrilled that BIC will continue under Ruth Jones’ stewardship as the new chair and have no doubt it will continue to go from strength to strength,” he said.
Karina Luke, executive director at BIC, thanked Majurey for five years of “dedicated support, commitment and service”.
Jones added: “BIC is at the heart of the book supply chain, and I am honoured to chair the operational board.”
Jones will be speaking at BIC’s New Trends in Publishing Seminar on Tuesday 6th September in London.
