Brian D. Scanlan, President of Thieme Publishers since 1995, will retire at the end of 2019. This prompted the Thieme management to restructure its international activities: As a result, Martin Spencker in his function as Executive Vice President International Business will from now on coordinate all the international market offerings of the Thieme Group at their headquarters. The individual locations themselves will be run by Managing Directors: From July 1 onwards, Dr. Cathrin Weinstein will take over this task for Thieme USA, and Louisa Turrell will do so for Thieme Brazil. Ajit Kohli will continue to perform this function for Thieme India, as will Dr. Daniel Schiff for Thieme China. Within the management of Thieme the international activities are assigned to Dr. Udo Schiller, who is responsible for products & solutions worldwide.

Spencker gained international experience with MacMillan Professional Books and Oxford University Press in New York and also in connection with the international marketing of Thieme’s Anatomy Atlas PROMETHEUS. “In view of his international background, but mainly due to his experience with digital business models and the transformation of processes, offers and services into digital services, Martin Spencker is the best qualified person for this new task” stated Dr. h.c. Albrecht Hauff, Chief Executive Officer of the Thieme Group, as the reason for the decision.
