Mare Nostrum increases headcount
In July 2012, Mare Nostrum took over German agency SHS’s client base in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Congruent with the company’s extension into new territories, two new staff members have joined the team. Frauke Feldmann has taken the position of Sales Manager for the aforementioned territories and Katie Machin has become the new Marketing Executive Apprentice.
Frauke brings almost a decade of experience as a German bookseller to the company and was keen to transfer her understanding and knowledge to a role in publishing sales. Katie has recently completed a Masters at the University of Leeds and is excited to begin her career in a new environment.
Since successfully arranging a deal in December 2011 to represent Thieme in Belgium and the Netherlands, Mare Nostrum had been looking to increase their presence in other European markets.
David Pickering of Mare Nostrum comments, ‘The expansion into Germanic territories indicates a positive period for the company. The growth of our interest and scope is reflected in the need to employ new staff members, and we look forward to integrating the new additions into the team.’
