Johnson: 'Bonnier is fourth biggest publisher in UK'

Under c.e.o. Richard Johnson, the past few years have seen breathtaking change at Bonnier Publishing, the English-language wing of family-owned Swedish media giant Bonnier. There have been five start-ups, overseas and in the UK, most recently a UK adult fiction business headed by Mark Smith; and there have been acquisitions including, this year, Igloo Books and digital romance/ erotic publisher Totally Entwined. After a variety of moves, the companies are now organised in three locations: children’s (Igloo and Autumn) in Northamptonshire; fiction in Marylebone; and non-fiction in Chelsea.
