Digital Restructuring at HarperCollins

HarperCollins sent around a pair of internal memos today about some big restructuring on its digital fronts. According to the memos, HarperCollins will form two new entities: the Digital Technology Services Group and HarperCollins Digital. This news follows hot on the heels of the rumor that HarperCollins is in talks with Apple to produce tablet content.

Here’s more from our sibling blog GalleyCat:

HarperCollins Digital will contain three separate teams: author services, consumer products, and business development. The new group will result in a number of personnel shifts, including the promotion of Carolyn Pittis to senior VP, HarperCollins Digital, global author services; Joe Park to senior VP HarperCollins Digital, consumer products. Leslie Hulse will maintain her role as VP, digital business development.

In a memo, HarperCollins’ Executive VP of Operations Larry Nevins explained that the Digital Technology Services Group: “is charged with providing strategic technology solutions across HarperCollins and supporting our global digital initiatives. The team will work with Chief Digital Officer Charlie Redmayne to develop new technologies that align with our digital strategy, and will continue to partner with Corporate IT to address the ever-changing digital technology needs of business.”
