every meeting a party—until mutually-assured destruction plus a crystal ball for the future of the print world
Sir David Arculus is currently Chairman of Energy (UK), Hassium Asset Management and a Non Executive Director of Pearson plc. He has experience in publishing, telecommunications and banking in a long career in business. David’s previous roles include the chairmanship of Aldermore Bank plc, Numis Corporation, O2 plc, Severn Trent plc, IPC Group and the British Library Advisory Board, as well as chief operating officer of United Business Media plc, group managing director of EMAP plc and a non-executive director of Telefonica S.A. David served from 2002 to 2006 as chairman of the British government’s Better Regulation Task Force, which worked on reducing burdens on business.
Joining EMAP in 1972, Sir David took the business from being a small regional newspaper publisher to becoming a massive media group, encompassing magazine, events, exhibitions and data products. The Stationers’ Company is very fortunate to have the story told by the man himself; this should be a fascinating and unique opportunity to understand how publishing businesses can grow strategically.
