The book industry’s Publishers Association has a new Chief Executive, in the form of Richard Mollet, who is currently Head Of Public Affairs at the record industry’s main trade body the BPI.

Mollet played a key role in presenting the record industry’s viewpoint while the Digital Economy Act, and especially its three-strikes launching copyright section, was being drafted and debated in parliament earlier this year.

He will join the Publishers’ Association later this year, taking over from current CEO Simon Juden.

NOTE: This story initially incorrectly stated that Mollet was joining the Music Publishers Association.
