Levin Leaving UBM March 1 to Become Head of McGraw-Hill Education


London, UK – David Levin moved up his departure date as CEO of UBM to March 1 after accepting a job as president and CEO of McGraw-Hill Education in New York.

Levin announced in the Fall he planned to step down at UBM at the end of July, but will instead start his new position with the publishing giant in April.

Levin was named a TSE Leader & Legend in  a cover story in the  October 2011 issue of Trade Show Executive and was the featured Power Lunch speaker at TSE’s Gold 100 Awards & Summit  in September 2011.

“I am really excited to be joining McGraw-Hill Education at such a pivotal point for both the company and the education industry,” said Levin. “McGraw-Hill Education has made great strides in its transformation from a textbook publisher to a digital learning solutions company.”

Dame Helen Alexander, chairman of UBM, will assume the role of CEO of the company when Levin departs and while the search for a permanent replacement continues. “We are making very good progress in the search for David’s successor and will ensure there is an orderly transition,” Alexander said. “UBM has a strong and experienced senior management team, and it is very much business as usual.”
