SAGE Publishing Appoints Michael Duffy as U.S. Director of Library Sales
SAGE Publishing today announces that Michael Duffy has been appointed Director of Library Sales, overseeing SAGE’s North American Library Sales Team.
“I am honored to lead SAGE’s sales team and to have the opportunity to serve librarians on a much broader scale,” Michael commented. “My goal is to ensure that our team actively promotes SAGE’s mission of improving academic publishing so that it can be a vehicle for supporting education and scholarship and ultimately, for improving the world. I truly believe that we can work with librarians as partners in supporting this shared vision.”
David Horwitz, Vice President of Sales at SAGE Publishing, commented, “Serving librarians, who are at the forefront of successful education and scholarship, is key to fulfilling the SAGE mission. With this appointment and additional improvements to our Library Sales team, we will ensure that our library partners get the personal attention that they need for optimal acquisition and use of SAGE content such as our 1,000+ journals and other born-digital resources including video, data, and case studies.”
