Vincent Cassidy

Vincent worked at the IET for over five years and in his time with the IET, made a very significant and hugely valued contribution within Knowledge Services and Solutions, especially in the development of Inspec – from indexing and abstracting, to analytics and intelligence.

He also led the transformational move of the IET’s entire journals portfolio to open access, with a new partnership with Wiley in 2020.

Vincent was hugely respected and widely known across the global science, technical and information publishing community, based on over 30 years of experience and expertise gained at organisations such as Reed Elsevier and Thomson Reuters.

His specialties included developing customer-centred strategies supported by clear operating plans, digital marketing and customer engagement, product innovation, and developing teams and a common performance culture to transform complex organisations.

Giles Grant, Director of Knowledge Services and Solutions, said: “Vincent was a wise and wonderful colleague, a great friend to many across the IET and beyond in the wider global information solutions community. He will be greatly missed”.
