Bonnier Corp. Named Publishing Innovator of the Year
This year, Bonnier will launch more titles for tablets, bringing the total to more than 20 by the year's end.
The company also launched the PopSci School Inventors Challenge for elementary, middle and high school students with the support of several sponsors. This has enabled Bonnier, and in particular its Popular Science brand, to support science in classrooms.
"Bonnier has been taking a leadership position in a time of significant industry transition, and setting the industry up to learn from its efforts," says Publishing Executive Editorial Director Noelle Skodzinski. "This is a great achievement, especially considering that today it can be difficult enough to keep up with industry changes, let alone to be a leader amidst them."
Among many Bonnier executives at the awards reception who were involved in the company's recent achievements was Gregg Hano, vice president and group publisher of Bonnier's Technology Group, who accepted the award on behalf of the company.
"We are in the early stages of what is certainly one of the most exciting, transformative times in the publishing industry, and Bonnier was thrilled to be recognized by Publishing Executive magazine as pioneers in this space," says Hano.
Scholastic Inc. was recognized by Book Business magazine as Publishing Innovator of the year for its innovation in book publishing and also recognized at the awards reception.
This is the third year that Publishing Executive and Book Business magazines, published by North American Publishing Co., have recognized Publishing Innovators of the Year in magazine and book publishing. Previous award recipients include Esquire magazine, Harlequin Enterprises Ltd., Time Inc., and HarperCollins Publishers.
Recipients often are nominated by readers of Publishing Executive and Book Business, and are selected by each magazine's editorial staff and editorial advisory board. PE
