Baker & Taylor, Inc.( 07/13/2009 )

New Structure to Grow Sales of Bundled Digital and Physical Media

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - July 10, 2009 - Baker & Taylor, Inc., world's largest distributor of physical and digital books and entertainment products, today announced an organizational shift that will enhance its ability to grow its retail business and to provide comprehensive publisher services.

Bob Nelson, Executive Vice President of Global Business Development, will take on additional responsibilities to include all retail sales activities focused on current and new customer groups, both in the U.S. and overseas. Having forged key strategic digital partnerships that helped position Baker & Taylor as a premier digital and physical content distributor, he will now focus on growing the company's retail business relationships globally.

"Bob's background makes him the perfect fit to focus on several important new customer segments, especially in the non-traditional, corporate and government market segments," said Tom Morgan, CEO of Baker & Taylor. "He will leverage his knowledge and relationships in the digital media space to pursue comprehensive digital and physical deals with new and existing customers who can benefit from our broad range of products and services."

Bob will report to David Cully, President of Retail Markets and Executive Vice President of Merchandising, on the retail segment. Bob will continue to be Baker & Taylor's primary contact for the company's key digital partnerships - LibreDigital, OverDrive and RR Donnelley. He will also continue to report directly to the CEO on broader strategic issues, potential partnerships and new alliances that would support the digital supply chain.

David Cully will oversee all activities focused on suppliers, including all merchandising, content acquisition and publisher services, as well as implementation of retail strategies. The newly-formed Digital Media Services Group will report to David and will facilitate the streamlining and integration of our merchandising and publisher services initiatives.

"David's superior relationships with our suppliers and his knowledge of the industry can be best leveraged to acquire digital content and develop our publisher services business," Morgan said. "David will focus heavily on furthering integrated physical and digital merchandising relationships with our vendors."
