Emerald appoints Technology Director to lead publisher’s digital innovation

Emerald Publishing has appointed Alice Fleet as its Technology Director as the company continues to drive its digital innovation strategy. 

The move follows the recent launch of the publisher’s new Insight digital research platform, in which Alice had an instrumental role in the delivery as well leading improvements to the publisher’s operational infrastructure. 

Previously holding roles at ProQuest and Cambridge University Press, Alice has a wealth of experience across editorial, product management, platform management, delivery and broad technology solutions. Her most recent role as Head of Business Technology at Emerald Publishing gives Alice a deep understanding of Emerald’s culture and its vision to move away from the traditional norms of publishing. 

Alice Fleet commented: “I am delighted to join the board at such an exciting time for Emerald Publishing. This year has seen the company challenge, invest in and transform its digital direction but there is more to come as we explore the exciting ways technology can enable a deeper understanding of the impact of social sciences research."

Vicky Williams, CEO of Emerald Publishing, said: “Alice is a valued and trusted leader and joins the board to lead our technology strategy into the future. 

“As with most information-led businesses, technology is taking on an increasingly central role within our business as we develop distinctive digital solutions for our customers and stakeholders. This is a really exciting time for Emerald, where we are looking to everyone in the business to develop a digital-first mindset when it comes to our products, services, systems and interactions.” 

In addition to her Emerald Publishing responsibilities, Alice will be working closely with Emerald Group’s learning and development companies to ensure Group alignment across its platforms, systems and infrastructure to enable Emerald to explore joint solutions for its customers in the future.
