The Monday Interview
Sir Crispin David

Reed’s leader from dusty to digital
The outgoing chief executive tells Andrew Edgecliffe-Johnson how the publisher prospered as others suffered in the internet maelstrom.

According to the piece,

 
Almost three years ago, he decided Reed needed to “raise the bar again”, refining its strategy beyond simply digitising content to embedding it in productivity-enhancing online tools for lawyers, scientists and doctors.  The number of technologists employed by the company has grown from 400 to 4,800 in ten years and the share of revenues coming under the ungainly banner of “workflow solutions” has risen to more than 50 per cent.”
