Founder and President, Martin Hill, has more than 30 years’ experience in international scholarly, scientific, technical, medical and professional publishing. He started his career in the UK with the Longman Group (now fully subsumed under its parent company’s name, Pearson) where he held a variety of positions eventually leading to Sales and Marketing Director for the Trade, Higher Education and Professional Division. In 1992 he moved to New York to take up the post of Vice President of Sales and Marketing and Chief Strategic Officer for Churchill Livingstone (medical publishers, now an imprint of Elsevier).

In 1996 he relocated to San Francisco and established his own consulting practice which, after much expansion and a move of headquarters to New York City, became MPHC.

He looks forward to working with existing and new clients to develop and implement marketing and business development strategies during this exciting and challenging time of change for specialist publishers.
