Westminster John Knox Press Expands Its Sales Efforts with Two New Hires
Joining WJK as a sales representative is Richard Wisniewski, whose veteran sales career spans thirty years, particularly in technical and specialty markets. He has worked with publishers such as Electronic Arts, Macmillan, Tudor, McGraw-Hill, and Elsevier, and his experience includes sales to some of WJK's most important accounts, including Barnes & Noble, Baker & Taylor, and Amazon, as well as numerous academic accounts. Richard will work remotely from his home located outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, but will be in the Louisville office regularly. His main areas of focus will be making sales calls to independent, academic, and specialty stores across the country.
"WJK is very fortunate and extremely excited to have two highly experienced publishing professionals like Richard and Bill join our team," said President and Publisher Marc Lewis about the new hires. Both Richard and Bill began work on February 13.
With a publishing heritage that dates back more than 175 years, Westminster John Knox Press books cover the spectrum of religious thought and represent the work of scholarly and popular authors of many different religious and theological affiliations. WJK publishes approximately 60 new books and other resources each year and manages a backlist of more than 2,100 titles that are sold throughout the world.
