Nicholas Brealey in North America (NB Publishing, Inc) has bought the Davies-Black list from training company CPP. Davies-Black specialises in business and career management titles. The deal was concluded on 31 December 2008.
Davies-Black offered a very good fit with the NB business, said founder and MD Nicholas Brealey. 'This acquisition unifies the two best coaching lists from both sides of the Atlantic and Davies-Black's distinguished titles will add real depth to our already comprehensive range, particularly in the leadership and human resources categories.' The NB and Davies-Black lists shared a US distributor, NBN, 'so this will be logistically seamless'.
