Where it all began
Adrian and Susannah Webster founded Websters International Publishers as a book publisher in 1983, initially specialising in wine and food publications, travel guides and international publishing consultancy. Websters established a leading reputation in the global marketplace for its content creation in those fields, and branched out into project management and consultancy.
Harnessing Websters’ editorial and design capabilities, Adrian also ran The Economist Books, The Organiser Company and Rodale Books International. He was for many years international publishing consultant to World Book and then to Microsoft, for whom he played a key role in the international establishment of Encarta Encyclopedia. For Websters he developed a hugely successful international wine book programme with Oz Clarke and other top authors, as well as Microsoft Wine Guide (CD-ROM), Vinsight (an MSN website) and the wine information content for WineToday.com (New York Times Digital).
Throughout their careers Adrian and Susannah have specialised in building content partnerships with major international companies and in 1993 they took Websters into a significant digital content management relationship with Microsoft and MSN, which continues to this day. Websters embarked on an ambitious project with Microsoft in the development of international editions of many information-oriented products, most notably Encarta Encyclopedia.
With offices based in London, Seattle, Paris, Madrid, Munich and Milan, this gave Websters a strong background in digital, educational and reference media. We expanded to work with other major technology companies and leading brands.
Websters divested its book publishing interests to Pavilion Books in 2007 to concentrate on digital content partnerships. In 2009 a majority interest in the company was sold to the long-term senior management. The other key directors, Jean-Luc Barbanneau, David Skinner and Alan Fennell, who helped build the company internationally, are still involved today as non-executive directors and company secretary. In 2021 a new and expanded board of directors was formed to include a new senior management team with long-term Websters managers.
