Nashville, Tenn. (October 27, 2020)—HarperCollins Christian Publishing (HCCP) and HarperCollins Focus (HCF) today announced Brad Hill’s promotion to director of audio sales.

Hill began his career at Zondervan, a publishing group within HCCP, in 2006 on the audio production team where he helped bring front list titles to the audio format.  Before returning to HCCP and HCF in 2019, he spent six years managing teams at Brilliance Audio where he gained experience in the broader audio publishing industry.

Most recently serving as senior manager of audio sales, Hill has led several growth initiatives including bringing licensed audio in-house, artificial-intelligence (AI) voice narration, and refreshing and expanding previous abridged editions. In addition, Hill has led the effort to bring one of our top academic works to the audio format this fall, Systematic Theology by Wayne Grudema first for a major textbook from Zondervan Academic.

As director of audio sales, Hill will lead the strategy for the HCCP and HCF audiobooks program, overseeing the audio editorial and marketing process and helping pursue innovative ways to utilize the audio format. Hill will collaborate with publishing teams to continue to expand the audio program and to continue to grow the company’s audiobook market-share.

“I am thrilled for Brad to step into this role,” said Jason Short, senior director of digital sales. “During his time at HCCP, he has proven that he is an aggressive innovator and excellent manager as well as a collaborative team player.
