The Macmillan International Higher Education team, with 17 employees, is to be transferred from Springer Nature to Macmillan Learning.
The team had previously sold Macmillan Learning and other course materials throughout Europe and Australia but will now focus specifically on Macmillan Learning products and technologies.
Macmillan Learning is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Holtzbrinck Publishing Group, which also holds a majority share of Springer Nature.
“The move provides even more students and instructors around the world with access to the company’s learning materials and educational technology, including Achieve, the company’s new digital learning platform,” Macmillan Learning said.
Susan Winslow, president of Macmillan Learning, said: “We are delighted to welcome our colleagues from Macmillan International Higher Education into an even more united partnership, and to strengthen our ability to serve and support our global customers. This move supports our long-term global strategy and creates new opportunities for Macmillan Learning.”
Katie Thorn, sales and marketing director, Macmillan International Higher Education, said: “Macmillan Learning has a stellar reputation in Europe and is known to partner with some of the best minds in their fields and academia to develop course materials and technologies. I’m excited to join this team and support their mission to inspire learning and see all students succeed,”
Macmillan Learning is a privately-held, family-owned company dedicated to learning materials for the higher education market. It has been selling its products to international markets for more than 25 years with the Macmillan International Higher Education team, as well as a dedicated North American sales team.
