Dr. Wien will join Elsevier on February 01, 2023 to build and enhance the company’s relationships with the European academic library community, and to strengthen Elsevier’s commitment to be a trusted, innovative, and collaborative provider of services and content.

Gwen Evans, Vice President of Global Library Relations at Elsevier, said: “I am delighted to have Charlotte join our growing team at Elsevier. Her insightful expertise will be invaluable as we continue to deepen our engagement with library leaders in Europe and support the scientific community in their efforts to advance research and innovation.
