Sydney, London, New York, 1 May 2012: HarperCollins today announced that Michael Moynahan has decided to retire as CEO of HarperCollins Australia and New Zealand, in order to return to his native New Zealand. James Kellow, currently Commercial Director, will be the new CEO ANZ from 1 June 2012.
HarperCollins UK and International CEO, Victoria Barnsley said: “It is with great regret that we see Michael depart from HarperCollins. His huge energy and experience during four years at the helm have helped move the business to a different level. In addition, in his other capacity as a Board Director of HarperCollins India, Michael’s knowledge of the Indian publishing market has been invaluable and I welcome his decision to remain on the Indian Board until the end of this year. I am sure I speak on behalf of all the team, both Michael’s direct reports and those of us who work with him in HarperCollins’ offices around the world, when I say that he will be greatly missed by all of us.
“James Kellow is the natural successor to Michael -they have been a great team together in the past four years, seeing the business through some challenging times. Personally, I have known James for many years, since we worked together at 4th Estate in the 1990s, and I am sure he is the right person to lead the business in the times ahead."
Michael Moynahan said: “HarperCollins Australia and New Zealand is a truly great company which I have been very proud to lead. The commitment this company has to its authors, its customers and its people, is second to none. The creative way it approaches everything it does gives me confidence that whatever the future brings, it will face the challenges with great gusto. My decision to leave has been a personal one but I leave knowing that this is a truly first-class team. I have greatly enjoyed my time at HarperCollins, in most part because of the people, and there has been no greater joy for me than to come to work every day with this incredibly talented group. I want to thank James, Shona, Christine, Malcolm, Tony and rest of the senior team for their tremendous support over the last few years and in particular wish James the very best in his new role.”
James Kellow has over 20 years publishing experience, having held senior Sales and Marketing roles in Penguin, Simon & Schuster and 4th Estate, all in the UK. In his current role, he has been responsible for sales, marketing, digital and publishing operations and has, with Michael, helped steer the business over the last few years.
James Kellow said: “I couldn’t be more positive about our future. Michael has been an inspirational leader over the past four years and has transformed the company. We are now brilliantly placed to go on and achieve so much for our authors, our readers and our people. I’m very much looking forward to building on Michael’s contribution and leading this fantastic team to great success.”
