September 1, 2011

IPG is pleased to announce it will now be distributing titles from Triumph Books, effective September 1, 2011. Says Mitch Rogatz, President and Publisher of Triumph Books, “We are very excited about our new, independent direction—and connecting with our long-time colleagues and friends at IPG. They bring a lot of energy and focus to Triumph in terms of sales potential. This will be the first time Triumph’s books are represented by both gift rep and trade sales rep forces. We believe they can bring tremendous visibility and sales for our titles, especially in the library market and specialty markets.” Triumph Books was previously affiliated with Random House, Inc.
