Giles Clark, with a family background in publishing, and educated at University College London, worked at The Open University UK, where he was the Copublishing Adviser. He organized copublication arrangements between the University and a wide range of publishers from small to large, across most academic disciplines. The partnerships forged with commercial publishers extend the university’s readership internationally, reduce its costs and give it entrepreneurial income. He now chairs the Graham Greene Birthplace Trust in Berkhamsted, serves on other charities and works on business ventures.
