Kodansha’s New President Is An eBook Advocate

Some time in mid April a new President will be assuming leadership at Kodansha Ltd, a major Japanese publishing house.  Yoshinobu Noma, currently the executive vice president, is expected to replace his mother when she retires from the position she’s held for the past 24 years.

Mr. Noma also currently serves as a director for the Electronic Book Publishers Association of Japan.

Back in 2010, he had this to say about ebooks: “Electronic books have the potential to increase the ways in which literary works are read. This would stimulate demand for paper books and revitalize the publishing market, including bookstores.”
