After a 40 year career in publishing both in New Zealand and the UK, Tony Fisk has announced that he will step down from the role of Managing Director of HarperCollins NZ in April.

Michael Moynahan CEO HarperCollins ANZ said, "There are so very few occasions when a company is able to acknowledge such a significant and long standing contribution as that which Tony Fisk has made on behalf of HarperCollins. For many years, Tony Fisk and HarperCollins New Zealand have been synonymous and the way he has guided this business through an enormous amount of change is a tribute to his capacity as both a manager and a publisher. HarperCollins New Zealand will measure the loss of Tony's guidance and our industry has greatly benefited from his energy and creativity over the years. I want to take this moment to personally thank Tony and wish him the very best for what the future holds.

Tony Fisk said, "I feel very blessed to have had a wonderful career in publishing spanning 40 years - 39 of them with the same company. During my time I have met and worked with some wonderful people - colleagues, authors and booksellers and have made many dear friends. Obviously our industry is going through huge change but I really feel extremely positive about its future. The thrill of successfully connecting the creative talent of authors with readers is something that is very special and I don't feel will ever diminish"

Tony and his wife, Pat, intend to relocate to the UK to spend time exploring their homeland.
