Air Business appoints Peter Coebergh
Peter Coebergh: “I am thrilled to be joining Air Business to help drive growth in the academic publishing market.”

Air Business says Peter served as chief executive officer at Brill, a publisher in the fields of Humanities, International Law and Social Sciences. Prior to that, he held senior roles at Springer Nature Group and Kluwer Academic Publishers.

This appointment follows significant investment in technology and systems over the past few years, which has seen Air Business continue to develop its service offering to meet the ever-evolving needs of all its customers, with specific customisation for academic publishers. As a long-standing supplier to the market, Air Business’ subscriptions arm was previously owned by Reed Business Information, part of what is now the RELX Group, demonstrating a rich heritage in the sector, added the company.

Peter’s vast experience and understanding of the sector will be fundamental to his role at Air Business, continued the company, where he will provide insight and expertise across sales and marketing strategy, product development, service delivery and customer experience.

Adam Sherman, chief executive officer, Air Business, added: “Peter is a fantastic addition to our academic team and his appointment will build on the investment that we have made in this sector in recent years. Peter brings with him an enormous wealth of knowledge and experience which I am sure will prove invaluable to our clients.”

Peter Coebergh, advisor for academic development, Air Business, said: “I am thrilled to be joining Air Business to help drive growth in the academic publishing market. Having worked directly with Air Business in the past, I have been extremely impressed by the expertise demonstrated by the team, and the high-quality services they provide, from migration through to the general day-to-day business of supporting complex academic clients.”
