Cactus Communications gets new VP for Global Academic & Society Relations

Cactus Communications (CACTUS) has roped in Deborah Wyatt as Vice President, Global Academic and Society Relations.


She will be responsible for strategic partnerships with Societies, Institutes and peak bodies for the CACTUS brand Impact Science, which offers research promotion solutions such as videos, plain-language summaries, infographics, and other high-engagement formats.


Most recently, Deborah served as Vice President for Asia-Pacific Research for Wiley.


Abhishek Goel, Co-founder and CEO, CACTUS, said in the statement, “As academic societies in these current times face pressures due to cancelled events, drops in subscription revenues, and decline in memberships, we aim to support them in reinventing themselves by repurposing their content to be relevant and impactful for their membership, other key stakeholder groups and the wider public. We are excited to have Deborah Wyatt, who has significant experience in working with academic societies join us to lead this initiative and help create higher impact.”


Wyatt has more than 20 years of experience working in the scholarly and scientific publishing industry across various editorial, strategy and business leadership roles.


Wyatt said, “I am passionate about the power of research to change lives and to solve global challenges. Through Impact Science, CACTUS partners with peak bodies worldwide to bring peer-reviewed research to life in dynamic new ways for new audiences. I’m thrilled and proud to work with CACTUS and its strategic partners to amplify research and nurture evidence-based practice, policy and public awareness.”
