Back to news

Julian Shaw, Group Commercial Director at Bonnier Books UK, is leaving the business to pursue new opportunities.

Shaw joined the company in 2014, as Bonnier Books looked to establish itself as a force in the UK trade. During his time with the business he has worked on a wide variety of commercial, legal and strategic initiatives, including working closely with the management team at Bonnier Zaffre to transform the business from a small children’s fiction publisher into a highly-respected commercial fiction house.

 

Shaw has previously occupied senior commercial finance and business development roles at Sky TV, Daily Telegraph, Hachette UK and Simon & Schuster.

Shaw said: “It’s been a pleasure to work with so many talented people and help make Bonnier Books UK such a force in a relatively short period of time. I am extremely proud of our recent publishing successes and I have no doubt this success will continue. ”

I wish him every success in his future career.”
