About Us

Robert Ipsen headshot
Robert Ipsen, publishing industry consultant and executive coach

Having worked in multiple high-level global roles, I have led numerous strategic growth
initiatives and worked on many mergers and acquisitions. This has honed my ability to quickly learn organizations, understand the “connective tissue” in organizations, and facilitate executive level performance coaching sessions designed to engage the team, identify needs, and remove barriers to performance.

Steeped in the book trade from my very earliest days when I founded my own store, and then as “turnaround manager” for a national retail book chain, my business triage skills are second nature. When I joined global publishing company, Wiley, I grew one successful group after another, building lucrative partnerships, formulating growth strategies in all area of the business to achieve market leadership, and playing a key role in the Wiley acquisition of “For Dummies,” the most successful nonfiction brand in the world.
