Ka Meechan will be retiring from Nielsen at the end of August. Ka began her 25 years with the company when she joined Book Data Limited in Twickenham in 1988. She returned to New Zealand in 1997 to open the Asia Pacific branch and has subsequently expanded her role across the BookData and BookScan product groups throughout the region.
Jonathan Nowell, President of Nielsen’s book information businesses says: “Ka has been both a worthy competitor and (for the last eleven years) a wonderful colleague. I cannot praise enough her professionalism, her integrity and her commitment to both the business and the wider book industry. She leaves Nielsen stronger, and she leaves with our very best wishes for the future.”
Nielsen will be announcing the new management structure for New Zealand and Australia in the near future.
