Reed Business Information chief executive steps down

The chief executive of B2B publisher Reed Business Information Gerard van de Aast is to step down next month ahead of parent company Reed Elsevier’s sale of the business publisher.

Van de Aast will surrender his positions on the boards of both RBI and Reed Elsevier and from 15 December, when RBI’s UK chief executive Keith Jones will become acting chief executive for the division worldwide “pending resolution of the current divestment process”.

Van de Aast has been dealing with the attempted auction of RBI, which, due to the current economic crisis, has been delayed and seen the value of the business reduced.
