Leon was previously Chief Executive of the Society for Endocrinology and Managing Director of their commercial subsidiary Bioscientifica. Prior to joining the Society in 2011, Leon held senior publishing positions at Thomas Telford Ltd and before that at Chapman & Hall.
Leon's appointment will allow long-serving Publishing Director, David Green, to focus on strategic growth initiatives within Taylor & Francis Group journals.
Ian Bannerman, Managing Director for Journals at Taylor & Francis Group commented: “I have known Leon for many years and I’m very pleased that he has agreed to join us at Taylor & Francis. He brings a wealth of commercial publishing experience, supplemented with the additional insights gained from running a major medical society.”
