Steven Hall will be the new managing director of IOP Publishing, the publishing arm of the UK's Institute of Physics.

'Steven's track record in publishing, and STM in particular, is extensive and impressive,' commented Robert Kirby-Harris, chief executive of the Institute of Physics. Hall has worked for Macmillan Press, Chadwyck-Healey (now part of ProQuest), Blackwell Publishing and Wiley-Blackwell, as well as running his own scholarly publishing consultancy from 2008 onwards.

Hall will join the company in July, taking over from Jerry Cowhig, who will be retiring after 15 years as managing director. Cowhig said: 'I am grateful to the Institute of Physics, and especially to its wonderful publishing staff, for the privilege and enjoyment of working with them over the past 15 years. I welcome Steven and I confidently wish him and the company a successful future.'
