De Gruyter Gets New Leadership and Offers Free Content
The leadership structure at De Gruyter recently changed as the company finalized its acquisition of fellow publishers Akademie Verlag and Oldenbourg Wissenschaftsverlag. There is now a three-person executive board composed of De Gruyter leaders that divides the management responsibilities of different facets of the company.
Anke Beck, vice president of publishing for humanities and the social sciences, became managing director of the executive board and supervises all editorial departments.
Sven Fund, CEO, became chairman of the executive board and oversees marketing and sales.
Carsten Buhr, CFO, runs the production and other operative departments.
The epublications of all three companies are now accessible on De Gruyter Online, and customers in non-German-speaking countries can now work with De Gruyter’s distribution team.
De Gruyter is offering free access to Akademie and Oldenbourg digital content this month (from Aug. 5 to Sept. 2) in gratitude for customers’ support during the transition period.
