Columbia University Press is pleased to announce that Harvard University Press is joining the Columbia Sales Consortium for sales representation in the United States and Canada beginning September 1, 2016.
The Columbia Sales Consortium has represented the finest university and scholarly presses to the book trade in the United States for more than 25 years. With the inclusion of Harvard University Press, the group will expand its sales representation services into Canada. This move builds upon a relationship between the two publishers which began in 2011 when our sales force first started to represent Harvard University Press in only the Southeastern United States. Order fulfillment and customer service for Harvard University Press will remain with Triliteral.
The Columbia Sales Consortium team consists of Brad Hebel, Director of Operations and Sales for Columbia University Press; Catherine Hobbs, Consortium Sales Manager and Sales Representative for the Mid-Atlantic and Southern United States; Conor Broughan, Sales Representative for the Northeastern United States and Eastern Canada; Kevin Kurtz, Sales Representative for the Midwestern United States and Central Canada; and William Gawronski, Sales Representative for the Western United States and Western Canada.
The Columbia Sales Consortium also includes: University of California Press, Duke University Press, Fernwood Publishing, Georgetown University Press, ISD, McGill-Queens University Press, NYU Press, University of Alabama Press, University of Massachusetts Press, University of South Carolina Press, University of Virginia Press, and University of Washington Press.
William P. Sisler, Director of Harvard University Press says, “Harvard University Press is delighted to join the Columbia University Press sales consortium. Columbia has done a stellar job in representing us to the trade throughout the Southeast, and we look forward to expanding our collaboration with them and their other distinguished clients nationally and into Canada.”
Jennifer Crewe, Associate Provost and Director of Columbia University Press adds, “Columbia University Press is thrilled to add Harvard University Press to our sales consortium. Harvard University Press’s exceptional publishing program is a terrific complement to our own books and a perfect fit with the other distinguished presses in our consortium. We are delighted that Harvard has entrusted their books to our team, one of the strongest sales operations in academic publishing. Additionally, I am looking forward to the opportunity this move presents to build direct connections with our accounts in Canada.”
