Faculty of 1000 Appoints New CEO

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - Feb 25, 2014) - Respected business leader and web entrepreneur Daniel Marovitz has joined F1000 as Chief Executive Officer.

Working closely with and reporting to Vitek Tracz, Marovitz will have responsibility for all aspects of the F1000 businesses. He brings a wealth of experience in technology and Internet business, with a career spanning computer technology, media, ecommerce, financial services and enterprise software. His most recent role was as founder and CEO of buzzumi, a start-up technology company delivering video conferencing-based sales and collaboration solutions for the pharma and health industry, which will be acquired by F1000. Prior to founding buzzumi, he served as managing director and a member of the board of the Global Transaction Bank of Deutsche Bank for five years. He is a published author and noted conference speaker on business and Internet topics.

F1000 comprises the largest group of leading experts in biology and medicine to provide scientists and clinicians with a broad range of services for the rapid discovery, assessment and publication of research. In January 2014, F1000 expanded the scope of F1000Prime, its most established service, to include software for organizing academic journal clubs. Major new software tool launches are planned in the coming months.

Vitek Tracz, Chairman of F1000's parent, Science Navigation Group, said: "I am delighted to announce the appointment of Daniel Marovitz as the CEO of the F1000 Group. F1000 is rapidly expanding from publishing services into a collection of software tools for scientists to discover, organize, discuss - and publish - research. F1000, and our industry, is at a fascinating and important point of change, and I look forward to adding Daniel's creative drive and leadership to our team."

Daniel commented: "F1000 is at the centre of a disruptive storm in science information that touches so many core themes of technology and change. It is a tremendous honour to be entrusted with steering this valuable franchise to the next level of achievement."
