Levin to step down as UBM chief

UBM plc today announces that David Levin has informed the Board of his intention to step down as Chief Executive Officer by 31 July 2014.

A search process for his successor will be initiated by the Board and led by UBM’s Chairman, Dame Helen Alexander.  David will remain as UBM’s CEO while this search takes place as part of an orderly transition.

David joined UBM as CEO in 2005 and has led the transformation of UBM from a broad media conglomerate focused primarily on the UK and the US into an events and communications business with a significant proportion of its business in emerging markets.
