Jones joined RELX in 2011 when it acquired Accuity, where he was serving as chief executive officer. Most recently, he was global managing director for Accuity, Cirium, Estates Gazette (EG) and ICIS - all part of Risk & Business Analytics, a division of RELX. He will report to RELX CEO Erik Engstrom. Burchett, a 15-year-veteran of Reed Exhibitions, will serve as non-executive chairman through 2020, focusing on special projects and providing transitional support to Jones.
