The first Committee on Publication for London was Frederick Dixon, appointed in 1907. Two years later he took on the additional responsibility as District Manager for ‘Great Britain and Ireland’. He held this office until mid-1914, handing over to Charles Tennant.

The current District Manager is Robin Harragin Hussey, who took office in October, 2016.
