ProQuest Co. Announces Management Shake-Up


Hane, Paula J., Information Today


On October 29, ProQuest Co. announced a change in management and a reorganization that creates a new business unit within the company. The changes came I week after ProQuest reported this year's third quarter earnings and lowered expectations for the fourth quarter. In the announcement, ProQuest said that "Joe Reynolds, formerly president of the company's Information and Learning segment, has left the company to pursue other interests."

As part of a "strategy for growth in the education market" ProQuest also announced that it would form ProQuest Education, a new unit within its Information and Learning segment that will serve educators and further publishing partnerships worldwide.

Both internal and external candidates will be considered for these new positions."

Reynolds was named president and CEO of UMI in April 1998 and continued as president of the Information and Learning unit when the company became ProQuest. He was previously CEO of the ITP School and Career Education Group, a unit of International Thomson Corp. During his 15 years with Thomson, Reynolds held a number of senior management positions and built a significant track record in the education market. Under his leadership, the Information and Learning unit re-branded as ProQuest, developed the ProQuest service, and launched the Digital Vault digitization project.

On October 22, the company reported fairly strong third-quarter results. Revenues increased 8 percent to $106.4 million, compared to $98.6 million for the third quarter of 2001. In the Information and Learning segment, revenues increased 8 percent to $61.7 million in the third quarter, compared to $57.4 million for the same period last year. …
