Baker appointed MD of OUP

Oxford University Press (OUP) Australia and New Zealand has appointed Arthur Baker as its new MD, covering Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea.

Baker replaces Peter van Noorden, who announced his plans to retire earlier this year. Van Noorden has been in the role for the past 11 years.

Baker, currently vice president of the schools division of Pearson Australia, has spent his entire career in education publishing.

Oxford Education’s MD Kate Harris said she is ‘thrilled’ that van Noorden is ‘handing over his role into such capable hands’. ‘Arthur’s fantastic experience, leadership skills, and insights into education in Australia will enable OUP ANZ to grow and flourish,’ said Harris.

Baker will begin in the role in January 2018.
