Jeremy’s three decades of experience in publishing and book retail is informed by his senior and leadership roles in UK and overseas. Appointed Head of Publisher Relations (PLS) in October 2015, he was principally responsible for managing more than 3,500 publisher relationships across the education, business and public sectors. Jeremy gained an intimate understanding of publishers’ changing business needs to ensure the development of appropriate collective licensing and rights management services for its primary stakeholders.
Following an earlier commissioning career with Informa and Thomas Telford Publishing (ICE Publishing), Jeremy built on his experience as Publishing Manager with premier Middle East trade publisher, Motivate Publishing. In 2007, he took up a new role as CEO of bookseller, Magrudy's in Dubai. As a co-founder of Emirates Airline Festival of Literature, Jeremy led its operations team from 2009-2011. After four years, Jeremy returned to the UK to provide consultancy services to UK publishers and service providers, a role he reprised after leaving PLS in Spring 2019.
