David Marshall Named Publisher of SIAM

The Society for Industrial & Applied Mathematics (SIAM) is pleased to announce that David K. Marshall has been appointed Publisher. Mr. Marshall will assume the management of SIAM journal and book publishing programs beginning March 26, 2007.

"SIAM has a long history of providing the highest quality publications in mathematics and computational sciences to libraries, institutions and individuals" commented James Crowley, Executive Director of SIAM. "David possesses a wealth of experience in both book and journal publishing. He is well equipped to use this experience to keep SIAM's publishing program in the forefront of scholarly publishing."

Prior to joining SIAM, David held the position of Senior Publisher with Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, where he was responsible for managing a portfolio of neurology journals with annual revenues exceeding $18,000,000 annually. While there, he oversaw the launch of new features including the conversion of all back issues from print to online, and the doubling of frequency of Neurology, the flagship journal of the American Academy of Neurology. He was also instrumental in acquiring a society journal and initiating other acquisitions currently in process.

Before joining LWW, David served as General Manager, CME and Vice President, Content with MedCases, Inc., a provider of online case-based continuing education programs. While at MedCases, he cut the project development time in half and achieved cost savings through process improvements. Prior to those appointments, he was General Manager of Harcourt Health Communications. Revenue was doubled under his tenure.

"I'm excited with the opportunity I've been given at SIAM" David said. "I've been very impressed with my colleagues and look forward to working with them to build our program."
