Stephen A. Kippur led the development of Wiley’s Professional/Trade business from a small publishing program 25 years ago to a $430 million global enterprise today. Over the course of Stephen’s 31-year career at Wiley, he and his team established P/T as a market leader in key publishing categories, powered by renowned brands, franchises, and alliances, such as For Dummies, Frommer’s, Betty Crocker (General Mills), Better Homes and Gardens (Meredith), and Bloomberg, to name a few. The Company’s confidence in Stephen and his team is evidenced by important acquisitions, including Van Nostrand Reinhold (1997), Jossey-Bass (1998), and Hungry Minds (2001).
Stephen retired as Executive Vice President and President, P/T, on July 31, 2010. We join colleagues and partners around the world in wishing him all the best in the years ahead.
Eric A. Swanson successfully led Wiley’s Scientific, Technical, Medical, and Scholarly business for more than two decades, establishing Wiley as one of the largest and most respected companies in the industry. Eric was also a founding member and driving force in CrossRef, Research4Life, and many other industry initiatives that employ technology to benefit researchers, provide broader access to scientific and scholarly literature, and protect the integrity of published research.
Eric joined Wiley in 1989 with the acquisition of Alan R. Liss, Inc., a highly respected journals publisher, where he was Executive Vice President. At that time, he assumed leadership of Wiley’s STM business. Eric’s position evolved with the business, as Wiley acquired VCH (1996) and Blackwell Publishing (2007), the largest acquisition in Wiley’s 203-year history. To ensure a smooth transition, Eric’s successor, Steve Miron, assumed responsibility for global STMS on May 1, 2010, while Eric will focus on government and industry affairs until his retirement later this year.
