Alex Hedley has been appointed as HarperCollins NZ Publisher, replacing Finlay Macdonald who left for a role outside the industry.
Alex has, for the last four years, been the General Non-fiction Publisher at Penguin Random House publishing a broad list Non-fiction.
He is part of a fourth generation book trade family; his great grandfather William Hedley established Hedleys Booksellers in Masterton in 1907. Alex is also a photographer and author in his own right.
Alex’s appointment reaffirms HarperCollins’ commitment to publishing New Zealand authors for New Zealand readers.
HarperCollins is the publisher of The Notorious Captain Hayes.
