Stephen Barr, president of SAGE International, has been elected as the new president of the Publishers Association in the U.K., the Bookseller reported. He will take over for Joanna Prior, managing director of Penguin General Books, who remains as an officer on the PA Council. Barr, who has been serving as PA v-p, will be succeeded in that position by Lis Tribe, managing director for Hodder Education.

"The Publishers Association plays an essential role as the collective voice for the publishing community in the U.K., at a time when that voice is needed more than ever before," Barr said. "During my term as president of the PA, I hope to support the association's skilled and expert team in continuing to make the case for publishing as an innovative and dynamically changing industry which makes a vital contribution to the U.K.'s culture, society and economy."
