Following the announcement of leadership changes at Nielsen Book in April when the company announced that Jonathan Nowell was stepping down and Jonathan Stolper would be heading up the Nielsen Book businesses, Nielsen has announced that Ann Betts, Managing Director of Client Services, Book International, will be leaving the company at the end of August.

Jonathan Stolper, VP & Managing Director of Nielsen Book Global made the announcement today and it is with regret that after almost 17 years with Nielsen Book that Ann Betts leaves.

Ann started her career with Whitaker BookTrack as Business Development Manager … and was promoted in December 2013 to her current role. She has been responsible for the commercial relationships for the International business including UK, Italy, Spain, India and South Africa and leaves the company in extremely good shape.

Jonathan Stolper said: “Ann’s accomplishments have been instrumental to Nielsen Book’s success over the years. She was a key figure in the establishment of Nielsen BookScan as the UK standard for book sales measurement and was the driving force behind Nielsen Book’s international expansion. Ann’s commitment to her clients and colleagues has been unmatched and she will be missed.“

Ann Betts said: “I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time with Nielsen and leave the business in a very different place to the one I joined back in 1998. I look forward to seeing the business continue to grow and wish everyone in the team a successful future.”
