2018 is an eventful year for Brill – not only are we working on the implementation of three important take-overs (Schöningh & Fink and Mentis in Germany and Sense Publishers in the Netherlands), and a new website, as per May of this year we’ll also have a new Management Team: In May, Peter Coebergh will be appointed CEO and Olivier de Vlam CFO and COO, following the scheduled retirement of Herman Pabbruwe that same month.
As per January 1st, Jasmin Lange has been appointed Chief Publishing Officer and member of the Management Team. Steven Perrick, Chairman of the Supervisory Board, commented: “We trust that through these appointments, Brill will be well positioned to continue its strategy to expand on its leading position in scholarly publishing. We look forward to a smooth transition period with ample time for a good handover”.
