John Wiley & Sons Inc (+N, WLY US, October 20th)

Matthew Kissner (Interim President and CEO since Oct 2023, Group Executive Vice President 2019-2021, Chairman 2015-2019, Non Executive 2003-2015) purchased $502,000 of stock on the 19th October at $30.33, increasing his holding by 90%. He was recently appointed as Interim President and CEO but has been involved in the group for many years prior to retiring in 2021. 

His last trade in the stock was a sale of $921,000 at $55.80 in April 2021. His largest previous buy was for $55,000. Whilst he has just been appointed his knowledge of the company is likely to be strong. 

David Dobson (Non Executive since 2017) purchased $149,000 of stock on the 16th of October and $95,000 of stock in June 2023, together these trades nearly triple his holding. His only previous buy was for $8,000 in September 2019. This is an interesting combination of purchases.
