Google has announced that Agnes Eymery will join the Google Australia team to work on digital partnerships, including ebooks.
Eymery currently works for Google in a similar role in London, having joined the company in 2006. She will relocate to Australia in October to take over Mark Tanner’s previous role of strategic partner development manager. As previously reported by Bookseller+Publisher, Tanner moved to New York earlier this year to join the US Google Books team.
The announcement follows the news that Louise Sherwin-Stark, currently ebook merchandiser for Google Australia, will join Bloomsbury in November as managing director of its Australian operations.
A spokesperson for Google told Bookseller+Publisher that Google does not have anything to announce regarding a replacement for Sherwin-Stark at this stage. The spokesperson said, however, that ‘merchandising the Play Books store to make sure that it highlights great Australian titles as well as international bestsellers is something that is very important to us and our readers’.
