HarperCollins has expanded its HarperCollins 360 program to the U.K., naming Karen Davis to the newly created role of affiliate publisher of HarperCollins 360. Davis had been head of U.K. sales for nonfiction and Collins. HC began HarperCollins 360, which aims to make all HC titles where it holds appropriate rights available through all of its subsidiaries, last summer when its U.S. division began marketing titles from the U.K. With Davis’ appointment U.S. titles will now be made available in the U.K.
“We are excited to extend HarperCollins 360 into the U.K. market,” said Vicky Barnsley, CEO of HarperCollins U.K. “We’ve already seen tremendous success for U.K. titles published into the U.S. under this program, and anticipate similar success with books coming into the U.K. Ultimately, the program will include titles from HarperCollins Canada, Australia, New Zealand and India into the U.K. market as well.”
“We are committed to ensuring that all books published by any division of HarperCollins around the world are available in print or digital format in all English-language markets,” added Michael Morrison, president and group publisher U.S. and Canada.
