Iain Melville - CEO

Iain Melville is an accomplished and experienced business leader, who blends natural strategy and innovation skills with a strong focus on execution and delivery of results. He is a specialist in the areas of Internet publishing and in the development and growth of information and data businesses in the B2B sector.

With more than 20 years experience managing the prosperity, growth and development of Internet, data, publication and event businesses, Iain joined Reed Construction Data from sister company Reed Business Information U.K., where he was managing director. His responsibilities included leading the publishing and data businesses for the International Chemical and Aerospace markets in addition to company-wide strategy, M&A and innovation.

Iain is not encumbered by the narrow experience of only one industry sector. By bringing the perspective and experience he has gained internationally and in other industries to the construction information services sector, Iain has overseen significant growth and innovation at Reed Construction Data and is a determined advocate for the adoption of technology within the Architectural, Engineering and Construction (AEC) community. Under Iain’s leadership, Reed Construction Data has applied this experience to improved products and service which has seen the company significantly grow its base of customers. RCD has also emerged as a pioneer in the developing field of Building Information Modeling (BIM) where Iain is working with strategic partners, including the American Institute of Architects, to develop tools, services and practices which both enable BIM adoption and enhance the essential environmental goal of reducing the carbon footprint of buildings.
