Jean-Gabriel Bankier (known as JG) has been with bepress for ten years. He has held
the role of bepress' president and chief executive officer since January 2010 during
which time he has led bepress into a period of extraordinary growth and the expansion of
its flagship service: Digital Commons. 

JG is an active contributor to the scholarly communications community. He co-authored a
report on institutional repository software requisitioned, peer-reviewed and published by
UNSECO. His views on the future of scholarly publishing were recently captured in a blog
interview by open access pundit Richard Poynder. JG presents regularly at universities
and scholarly conferences including CNI (2013) and Charleston Conference (2013). Finally,
he is currently a member of the SHARE technical working group representing the interests
of a community of IR managers 300 strong and counting. Previously, he was a member of the
Society of Scholarly Publishing program committee.
