independent content and publishing agency, Hardie Grant Media, has announced it will be taking on the Slattery Media Group’s content and publishing list as of October 2019.
Hardie Grant’s book publishing division will also sell and distribute Slattery Media Group’s established book list, as well as publishing current and future projects.
The Slattery Media Group (SMG) was founded in 1995 by Geoff Slattery and has grown to be one of Australia’s leading and most reputable publishers with its focus on sport, custom and trade publications.
Services offered by the group have included custom publishing and design, branding, media sales and digital content, and this will continue under the banner of Hardie Grant.
Previous and current SMG clients include Racing Victoria, Victoria Racing Club, AFL, Queen Victoria Market, VicBar and Telstra.
Hardie Grant Media managing director, Nick Hardie-Grant (featured image) said: “We’re looking forward to having Slattery Media Group join our team.
“Geoff runs a great business and we’ve kept a close eye on his work over the years (well before my time here).
“When the opportunity arose to continue doing what SMG does well while letting Geoff step back from the day to day, it all felt very natural.”
He added: “They have some great clients who we’re excited to continue working with.”
Slattery Media CEO, Geoff Slattery said: “This is a great opportunity for me personally, for our authors, and our clients to become part of a large organisation with a great track record in publishing.
“I had a terrific relationship with Sandy Grant and Fiona Hardie when Text Media began in the early 90s – before Hardie Grant began!
“It’s great to team up again with the family.”
