Richard Gibbons named publisher and chief operating officer of Business Publishers Inc.

The 27-year newsletter veteran Richard Gibbons, one of the most widely respected publishers in the industry, recently joined Business Publishers Inc. as publisher and chief operating officer, in line to become president of BPI this fall.

Gibbons succeeds founder Leonard A.C. Eiserer, who has just completed an incredible 62 years in the newsletter publishing business. Eiserer will remain chairman and chief executive officer of BPI.

Eiserer said he was "pleased and confident" that he has found "a worthy successor in Rick Gibbons to lead BPI to renewed growth in the challenging and uncharted electronic years ahead. His 27 years of proven achievements with Capitol Publications will serve him and BPI well in capitalizing on the myriad opportunities ahead."

Gibbons's newsletter experience dates back to 1974 when he joined Capitol Publications as controller and business manager. In succeeding years, he held the positions of vice president of operations, publisher, and president of Capitol Publications and publisher and general manager of Briefings Publishing Group.

Most recently, Gibbons was a newsletter publishing consultant and broker.

Beth Early, a 26-year newsletter publishing veteran, will continue as associate publisher with BPI. Responding to rumors that she was passed over for Gibbons's position, she told NL/NL that she had no desire whatsover in becoming publisher.

Eiserer said the Gibbons-Early team make "a formidable leadership duo." Early, who joined BPI nearly seven years ago, worked with Gibbons for ten years at Cap Pub.

After serving in a variety of positions at American Aviation Publications from 1939 to 1962, Eiserer founded BPI with the launch of Air/ Water Pollution Report in 1963. BPI currently publishes more than 40 newsletters covering pollution, defense, education, disabilities, and transportation.
