Reed Exhibitions Announces New Leadership for US Business
8/1/2019
Herve Sedky, President of Reed Exhibitions Americas, has announced two important leadership changes.

Effective January 1st, Fernando Fischer, currently the President of Reed Exhibitions Brazil, will be moving to the US to take on the role of President, RXUS. Fernando will report to Herve Sedky, President, RX Americas.

Fernando has served as CEO of Reed Exhibitions Brazil for the past three years, during which time he dramatically improved customer value, financial performance and employee engagement. During his tenure, RX Brazil significantly improved its leadership position, winning many industry and global awards. Prior to joining RX Brazil, Fernando served as CEO of companies in Brazil in a diverse range of segments ranging from consumer electronics, mobile/gaming, healthcare, security, food service and industrial. Fernando is best known for his innovation and his results-oriented focus on customers and employees alike.

Additionally, Yancy Weinrich will assume the position of Chief Operating Officer (COO). She will report to Fernando and assist him in the day to day operation of the business, and all B2B portfolio leads will report to her. Yancy had previously been Senior Vice President, leading the RX Jewelry portfolio including the JCK and LUXURY events, the JIS Shows, JCK Magazine and the JCK Online properties. Yancy also oversees the Sports and Lifestyle Portfolio which includes the PGA Shows, Racquet and Paddle, and Functional Fabric Fair(s). And, she recently took on management of the two Vision Expo Events which are a joint venture with the Vision Council of America. Yancy will assume her new role and broader B2B responsibilities immediately.

“Our commitment to the US strategy and focus on our people and our customers continues, and I am confident that Fernando and Yancy, together with our current senior leadership team, will build on the momentum that we have seen so far in 2019”, said Sedky. “We have great things to look forward to and now have a complete leadership structure to build on our momentum”.

In their regional or global roles, Lance Fensterman (President, Global ReedPOP), Gregg Vautrin (regional CFO), Les Weir (regional M&A), Bill Engle (regional pricing), the RX Mexico BU CEO and the RX Brazil BU CEO will all continue to report to Sedky.
