Richard Vize Public Policy Media Ltd
JOURNALISM AND MEDIA
CV
As a journalist, editor and manager I have a record of editorial and commercial success. Insight and relationships I am respected for my analysis of public policy, politics and management, with excellent networks and specialist knowledge across health and local and central government. My comment and analysis articles win readers’ attention and respect. Built on a deep understanding of public policy issues and insights from senior contacts, my writing is punchy and provocative. As Health Service Journal editor I led the team at the centre of Emap's biggest media title. We were essential reading, constantly breaking stories which attracted national attention. Ipsos Mori research gave some of the highest approval ratings they had ever seen for a publication. Building and leading teams I am an experienced manager in the media industry. I have led the editorial development at Dods Parliamentary Communications, delivering substantial increases in website traffic, major improvements in its magazines and a more integrated, collaborative culture in the editorial team. The eight titles include PoliticsHome, The House (for MPs and peers), TotalPolitics, Civil Service World, PublicTechnology and EU Parliament. As an editor I bring out the best in my teams, inspiring them to break stories which put them at the centre of their markets. Winning the magazine industry’s top award, the Periodical Publishers’ Association Business Editor of the Year, the judges commended how I “create an energetic, rewarding culture and give staff space to innovate”. At HSJ we grew subscriptions after three years' declining circulation at the same time as increasing the price by 31%. We integrated web content with the magazine, grew online traffic and user engagement, facilitated a doubling of online advertising and made the website subscription only. I conceived and led HSJ's celebrations of the NHS 60th anniversary, attended by the prime minister, delivering major commercial and reputational success. As LGC editor from 2000 to 2007 I repositioned the title to broaden appeal, driving up paid audited subscriptions by 9.8% in one year. I greatly strengthened LGC's reputation for being close to its market, breaking stories and driving debate. A record of achievement The PPA judges concluded: "His personality comes shining through the work… demonstrating the importance of what a personal contribution can bring to a brand." When I left Emap in 2010 chief executive David Gilbertson wrote: "You have built and led an outstanding team and created a climate for reporting excellence which sets high standards for others to match. You leave a brand in great standing and you should be proud of what you have achieved."
