I’m delighted to announce that Simon Milne will be joining HarperCollins Australia in the new position of Marketing Communications Director on Monday, 19 November.
Simon brings a wealth of experience in consumer engagement and strategic management from previous roles in music, video, online retail and digital marketing and most recently from his position as Marketing Communications Manager and General Manager, Books for the Leading Edge Group. Simon started his career in London as a film editor and director on music videos. After moving to Australia, he helped set up a global research and development project for Nokia, developed the web strategy for Inside Sport, and was Executive Producer for the original online retail shop at David Jones, before moving on to become CEO of the University Co-op bookstores.
I’m delighted to have someone of Simon’s calibre, creativity and breadth of experience to lead our combined marketing and publicity team through what I believe will be an incredibly exciting period as we find new and different ways of communicating with readers.
‘I am very excited to be joining the management team at HarperCollins Australia,’ says Simon Milne. ‘There have never been so many communication channels between authors, publishers, booksellers, the media and readers, and the integration of marketing and publicity will deliver great benefits for everyone. I look forward to continuing the great work done at HarperCollins, and finding new and innovative ways to communicate with our customers.’
