HarperCollins Expands Foreign Language Publishing
"The growth of our foreign language publishing program is proceeding as we had envisioned and we are thrilled to be expanding into these new regions with such an outstanding list of authors," said Brian Murray, President and CEO of HarperCollins Publishers. "We have seen great success in coordinated global publishing in the English language - lining up marketing, sales, and publicity in multiple markets simultaneously. Now, we are able to extend the effort even further to these foreign language markets."
In August 2014, HarperCollins completed the acquisition of Harlequin, adding more than a dozen international publishing offices to the company's operations. Over the last year it has formed HarperCollins Germany, HarperCollins Iberica, and HarperCollins Español, in addition to those announced today.
