Macmillan Learning, a privately-held, family-owned education publishing and services company, has announced that the Macmillan International Higher Education team that supported global sales of Macmillan Learning products is now a part of the company. 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. The team is being transferred from Springer Nature. Macmillan Learning is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Holtzbrinck Publishing Group (HPG), which holds a majority share of Springer Nature.
Macmillan Learning has been selling to international markets for more than 25 years, with a dedicated North American sales team and also via the Macmillan International Higher Education team. The team will sell the company’s full portfolio of course materials for the higher education market and educational technologies outside of North America.
The move brings 17 sales and marketing employees to the company. 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.Click here to read the original press release.
