STEPHEN WARSHAW is in no mood for hanging around now that he has arrived at Informa Group as the director in charge of publishing.

The former Reed man is determined to weld together the business information activities of LLP and IBC, which merged to form Informa in autumn last year.

Mr Warshaw, 50, wants to grow the telecommunications information side of the business, and get as many of the traditional business titles, such as Lloyd's List, online.

Where the company still has a small presence, such as in biomedical or pharmaceutical publishing, it may go on the acquisition trail, he says. Informa will also be looking to buy businesses in the US.
