Ingenta appoints Rebecca Lenzini to drive development of US business

Dear colleagues,

I wanted to let you know about Ingenta's recent appointment of 
Rebecca Lenzini to drive forward our publisher services business 
in North America.

Many of you will know Becky from her presidency of The Charleston 
Company, or from previous roles at CARL UnCover and Faxon. She 
will continue her involvement with the former, while working with 
us to explore opportunities for, in particular, our next 
generation publications platform, pub2web.

Becky and I will both be at ALA Midwinter this weekend so please 
do visit us at the Ingenta booth 1735.

Best regards,

Douglas Wright
Executive Vice President

** For Immediate Release**

Ingenta engages Rebecca Lenzini to drive development of North 
American opportunities

Ingenta, the technology provider which connects the publishing 
and information industries, recently announced that Rebecca 
Lenzini, President of The Charleston Company and a long-standing 
member of the scholarly publishing and library communities, will 
join the firm as Director of Business Development, Publisher 
Services, on an assignment to strategically improve the 
positioning and development of its US presence.

Lenzini is well-known as publisher of The Charleston Advisor and 
as co-founder and sponsor of the Fiesole Collection Development 
Retreat Series. She was previously President and COO of CARL 
Corporation in Denver, Colorado, and is one of the founders of 
UnCover, the original article retrieval and document delivery 
service introduced in 1988, now part of Ingenta. She also served 
as Vice President and Director of the Faxon Company's Academic 
Information Services Division in the 1980s. She holds a 
Certificate in Small Business Management from the Harvard 
Business School and an MLS from the University of Illinois at 
Urbana-Champaign where she served as a serials librarian and as 
Head of Technical Services. She will continue her activities for 
The Charleston Company in addition to her new role at Ingenta.

"This appointment reflects Ingenta's ongoing focus and commitment 
to its US market and illustrates our firm desire to strengthen 
our competitive position here; I think our success in attracting 
such a highly-rated individual is testament to the progress we 
have already made," says Ingenta Executive Vice President Douglas 
Wright. "As a long standing participant in the information 
community, Becky is ideally placed to leverage her knowledge and 
experience to help us improve and grow our services to our 
publisher customer base in North America."

Ingenta's flagship website, IngentaConnect, provides more than 
25,000 libraries with access to over 30,000 publications via 
subscription and document delivery. Publishers can opt to apply 
their own brand to their pages of the site using the 
IngentabyDesign service, or can upgrade to their own pub2web 
publications platform, which shares some IngentaConnect technical 
architecture but offers publishers full control over design and 
content structure. Library services were streamlined during 2007 
with new features being added to the standard free-to-use 
package, and the IngentaConnect Complete upgrade suite being 
repositioned as integrated document delivery, current awareness 
and customization modules.
