About

Evan SchnittmanA bit about me. My wonderfully long and absurd title is Managing Director, Group Sales and Marketing, Print and Digital, Bloomsbury Publishing Plc.  What that translates to is that I work for an amazing publisher that was rocketed into the limelight by one particular set of books for children but has grown into a global adult and children’s trade publisher as well as an incredibly important academic publisher. Best of all, I get to run the global sales and marketing of all print and digital products as well as licensing and business development deals. Woo-Hoo!

I recently left Oxford University Press, (yes, someone actually left OUP!) where i was Vice President of Global Corporate & Business Development where I was responsible for all digital partnerships and licensing across OUP’s 5 content divisions and M&A for teh Academic, Journals, and USA divisions.

As my remit at Bloomsbury (and previously at OUP) is global I have leaned about market behaviors and done extensive deals in Asia, Eastern, Western, and Northern Europe, and the UK. I speak and write fairly extensively on the key issues facing media and technology companies in today’s digital world.

I got my head start in business development and technology at The Princeton Review. There I evolved into the EVP of a web-based, advertising supported, college admissions business. I was formerly at Little, Brown as a senior editor in their Medical Division and prior to that I was an acquisitions editor and sales rep at FA Davis where I developed and sold Nursing textbooks. My start in publishing came at Barnes & Noble’s main store on 18th and 5th avenue.
