Tina Feick Retires from HARRASSOWITZ

October 27, 2016, Wiesbaden, GermanyIt is with mixed feelings that HARRASSOWITZ announces the retirement of our Director of Sales and Marketing for North America, Tina Feick. To be sure, Tina has earned her retirement after almost forty years of a near legendary career in Serials.

When Tina joined HARRASSOWITZ in 2008, she brought many years of experience to the company. Nearly twenty years with Blackwell’s Information Services were followed by eight years with Swets Information Services when Blackwell’s Information Services merged with Swets. Prior to becoming a vendor, Tina spent ten years in Serials positions at The Free Library of Philadelphia and Princeton University Library.

Over the years, in acknowledgement of her leadership in the library supply industry as well as her untiring promotion of Serials as a vital part of a library's mission, Tina has been honored with the 1994 Bowker/Ulrich's Serials Librarianship Award from ALA/ALCTS Serials Section and the 2005 NASIG Champion Award for her part in helping to found NASIG (formerly North American Serials Interest Group).


Friedemann Weigel, Managing Partner, Director of Sales summed up Tina's distinction and importance to the industry and to HARRASSOWITZ this way: "I know I speak for all of Tina's colleagues in the book and serials industry, vendors, publishers and librarians alike when I say that Tina Feick is known for her integrity! Her reputation built over nearly 40 years for truthfulness and fairness and the respect she gives to customers and colleagues has been the standard, the model for our industry.  We thank her for sharing her experience, knowledge and wisdom during a time of very positive growth! "

“It has been my great pleasure to end my career with HARRASSOWITZ, recognized by its customers and partners for its high quality service,” noted Tina Feick. “Over the past year, the firm has been planning for a smooth transition ensuring to continue the positive dynamic.  My thanks go to our sales team, the HARRASSOWITZ management and staff and to the library customers and partners for providing me with such a great opportunity to be of service.”


Tina will be at The Charleston Conference from November 2nd through November 5th, if you'd like to say good bye and wish her well.  A further announcement about her successor is forthcoming.
