Rounding off our earlier conversations about Paul Walker’s departure from Hodder, this week’s post brought me the following announcement from Hodder Faith, dated 28th May 2009:
Due to the current economic climate affecting the trade in the UK, and a restructure of our sales department, we have had to make the difficult decision to let Paul Walker go, after six years of outstanding service to Hodder Faith. During his time as Sales Representative with Hodder Faith, Paul has gained respect and admiration from his customers and colleagues alike, building Christian book sales and playing a key part in the publishing of the NIV Bible and the recent success of The Shack.
We will all miss Paul greatly and wish him the very best for a happy and successful future.
Sales Director — Hodder & Stoughton
