A Higher Calling
HCCP is applying its resources and attention to those things and working strategically with others for everything else. He points to HarperCollins' moving all of its print/paper/bind functions to Donnelly as a strategic partnership in this vein.
As Schoenwald reflects on HCCP's journey thus far he says, "now it's a new day with HCCP and going forward we're building on the strength of each" part of these former rivals. The results confirm that "One + One is greater than Two." He expects that HCCP will exceed its budget in its first transitional year. The success is "a reflection of people we have. We've got incredibly dedicated people [and] for a lot of them this is their mission."
