Roxbury is a publisher of textbooks, books and anthologies intended for adoption in college-level courses principally in sociology, criminology, criminal justice, speech communication, and political science. Claude Teweles, President of Roxbury, built the companyâs leading position in these disciplines over the past 25 years.
âThis transaction unites two well respected names in the academic publishing markets,â said Mary Jo Zandy, the Managing Director of Berkery, Noyes who handled the transaction. âIt also reflects the continuing mutual need of major publishers to gain greater access to high-quality content and the need among smaller, independent publishers to benefit from an acquirerâs global distribution.â
Berkery, Noyes & Co., LLC acted as financial advisor to Roxbury, and represented it in its negotiations with Oxford University Press. Berkery Noyes has been involved with many of the most notable transactions in the academic publishing, information, and scientific-technical-medical sectors, including those involving Reed Elsevier, Wolters Kluwer, Thomson and many others.
