07.10.10 | Jo Young
E-book distributor OverDrive has hired a new director of business development to oversee its growth in Europe.
Johanna Brinton, who has worked within the digital media sector for several years, will manage OverDrive’s expanded EU publisher and retail and e-commerce businesses from a London base.
"Johanna brings to OverDrive ten years of hands-on experience working with premium, copyrighted digital media and delivering e-commerce solutions for EU retailers, carriers, and OEMs," said OverDrive’s Erica Lazzaro.
During this week’s Frankfurt Book Fair, OverDrive demonstrated several new e-book and audiobook applications for platforms including PCs, iPads and Android devices.
