The Bookseller reports that James Kellow, currently commercial director of HarperCollins Australia and New Zealand, is to become the new c.e.o. of HC ANZ from 1st June, with Michael Moynahan retiring to return to his native New Zealand.
HC UK and International c.e.o. Victoria Barnsley paid tribute to Moynahan's "huge energy and experience" during his four years in the role and said he would be "greatly missed by all of us". Moynahan will remain a board director of HarperCollins India to the end of the year.
Barnsley added: "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."
As commercial director, Kellow has been responsible for sales, marketing, digital and publishing operations at HC ANZ. He previously held senior sales and marketing roles in Penguin, Simon & Schuster and Fourth Estate
