Mollet, who has been the association’s chief executive for the past five years, will take on the role of head of European government affairs at information and analytics company RELX Group, formerly Reed Elsevier. Publishers Association president Joanna Prior said in a statement: ‘For the last five years Richard has steered the PA brilliantly; representing our interests in Brussels and Whitehall with great skill and diplomacy, using his excellent communication skills as a really effective spokesman and advocate for our industry and developing a strong senior management team under him.’ The Publishers Association is undertaking a search for Mollet’s replacement.
