Eveleigh is expected to confront new challenges as media business models continue to evolve and intellectual-property laws and practices undergo changes to accommodate them.

“Doug has an impressive history of achievement and has been a strong leader throughout his legal career,” said Britannica president Jorge Cauz. “He brings a unique combination of legal, business and governance knowledge, honed through both large law firm and in-house experience. His deep knowledge of intellectual property will be a big asset to Britannica, and I am very pleased to have him on our team.”

Eveleigh holds a B.S. in manufacturing engineering from the Boston University College of Engineering, a law degree from John Marshall Law School in Chicago, and he is a member of the Illinois bar.
