AIP Publishing appoints Alexandra Vance as its new CEO -

AIP Publishing (AIPP) has announced the appointment of Alexandra (Alix) Vance as its new chief executive, effective August 1, 2020. AIP Publishing is a wholly owned but independently operated subsidiary of the American Institute of Physics (AIP), a 501(c)(3) membership corporation of scientific societies.

Vance comes to AIP Publishing after more than 20 years with academic, scholarly, and professional publishing organisations and, for the past nine years, has been CEO of GeoScienceWorld, a leading nonprofit primary and secondary publisher in the Earth Sciences and host of nearly 50 preeminent journals and 2,200 scholarly eBooks.

As CEO, Vance will be responsible for the overall operation and day-to-day management of AIP Publishing. The publishing company will continue its founding purpose to support the charitable, scientific and educational purposes of AIP through scholarly publishing activities in the fields of the physical and related sciences on its own behalf and on behalf of AIP’s Member Societies and other publishing partners.

Vance is looking forward to joining AIP Publishing, an organisation, she said, that brings unparalleled value to physics and the broader physical sciences community. In addition to her role with AIP Publishing, Vance serves on the board of directors for CHORUS, an organisation focused on advancing public access to research.

David Helfand, chair of the AIP Publishing Board of Managers and AIP Board of Directors, said Vance has demonstrated considerable creativity in her previous positions and led innovations in the area of data and services with those organizations.

Vance will step into the leadership role after current CEO John Haynes announced in October 2019 that he planned to step down. He has remained at the helm while the AIP Publishing Board of Managers selected his successor and will step down on May 31, 2020.

Roy Levenson, chief financial officer for AIP Publishing, will be the interim CEO until Vance arrives in August.
