Bonnier Publishing Creates Aussie Division

Shelf Awareness

Bonnier Publishing has launched Bonnier Publishing Australia "in a bid to expand further into the Australian and New Zealand markets," the Bookseller reported. The new division includes Five Mile Press and Echo Publishing.

Bonnier Group CEO Richard Johnson said the move "gives us the platform to deliver our ambitious plans for the Australian and New Zealand markets, which will ultimately see our division in Australia double in size, mirroring what we have achieved in the U.K. in the last two years. We intend to invest heavily to achieve that goal.

Bonnier Publishing, owned by Sweden's Bonnier Group, also has major book operations in Scandinavia; Germany, including Ullstein, Piper and Carlsen; and in the U.S., mainly Weldon Owen.
