Kobo Books Opens NYC Office; Ami Greko & Jan Ehrlich Join Staff

kobologo.jpgThe Canadian eBook company Kobo has opened a New York City office, building a staff “focused on publisher relations and content acquisition for the US market.”

To staff this new office, the company has hired Ami Greko as vendor relations senior manager and Jan Ehrlich as magazines and newspapers senior director.

Here’s more from the release: “With Kobo and US publishers, it’s been a long-distance relationship. Lots of planes, a river of email, plenty of phone and Skype. And like all long-distance relationships, it starts to get a little tired. Another meal at the airport. You wonder if they’re seeing someone else. You want more. Someone has to move. We asked the publishers if they could all move to Toronto. They said something about the lease on their Manhattan apartment and how they were focused on their career right now. It looks like it’s up to us.”
