 “I am excited to be joining the Board of Directors at such a crucial time. I’m impressed with what Charlesworth has to offer. Charlesworth has a solid background of providing publishing services, but additionally they are an innovative, technology-led, forward-thinking company. Celebrating their twentieth year in China this year, Charlesworth is undoubtedly the market leader within the Chinese market and has a remarkably robust network there with the libraries, academics and strong government connections. I look forward to working with Charlesworth not only to grow their existing footprint in the global publishing community but to expand into new opportunities.”

Mark will be supporting the Charlesworth Group with their overall strategic direction as they continue a period of rapid growth. Mark’s experience in both start-up and established businesses, together with a track record of evolving new digital businesses, will be particularly valuable in the next phase of Charlesworth’s evolution. He brings a wealth of experience of growing digital B2B and B2C businesses and in developing new revenue streams for academic and professional publishers.
