Nicholas Brealey buys Davies-Black books

<p>Independent Nicholas Brealey Publishing&#39;s North America company, NB Publishing Inc, has acquired the Davies-Black book division from CPP Inc.<br /><br />The deal closed on 31st December, 2008. Nicholas Brealey Publishing comprises Intercultural Press, which specialises in cross-cultural titles for professional and academic markets, and Nicholas Brealey, which focuses on coaching, business, and popular psychology books for trade and professional markets. Davies-Black would remain a &quot;separate line&quot;, according to North America v.p. Chuck Dresner.</p><p>&quot;This acquisition unifies the two best coaching lists from both sides of the Atlantic and Davies-Black&#39;s distinguished titles will add real depth to our already comprehensive range,&quot; said founder and m.d. Nicholas Brealey. &quot;It [also] brings us the fresh area of career management.&quot; He added, &quot;We already share the same US distributor in NBN so this will be logistically seamless.&nbsp; This is an exciting expansion of our US list.&quot;</p><p>The acquisition includes over 100 Davies-Black business and career titles.</p>
