BMJ has appointed a US managing director, Glen Campbell, who joins the company on 2 September. He was previously executive vice president for society business development, STM Journals at Elsevier and also worked for many years in Elsevier's Health Sciences Division.

'The BMJ board agreed earlier this year that in order to maintain the momentum of our growth outside our home market, it was essential to recruit local senior management in key territories. Glen is a most experienced professional, who brings a lifelong knowledge of medical publishing, and unrivalled contacts in the US health sector. His appointment follows that of Anand Ekambaram to the corresponding role in India, announced last month,' commented BMJ CEO Tim Brooks.

He continued: 'For most of its long history, BMJ has been a British business with a pleasing line in exports. However, most of our revenues now originate outside the UK, and the arrival of Glen and Anand signals a transition to a multi-centre, global business.'
