As of January 1, Macmillan’s college education division, formerly known as the Bedford, Worth & Freeman Publishing Group, will be rebranded as Macmillan Higher Education. The group includes Bedford/St. Martin’s, W.H. Freeman, Worth Publishers, Hayden McNeil, and i>clicker. The K-12 Division will still operate under the Bedford, Worth & Freeman name.
“This name change is indicative of our growing position as a global media company,” said ceo John Sargent in a statement. “Moving to Macmillan not only signifies our collective strength and the breadth of our offerings, but also allows us to more fully leverage our investments in print and digital publishing, and more clearly position ourselves for the future.”
