GENERAL MERCHANDISE

Stanfords managing director to leave the business

Travel bookshop Stanfords will see its managing director Tony Maher leave the company at the end of March.

Vivien Godfrey will assume the role of executive chairman to lead the Stanfords management team following Maher’s departure.

Her experience includes working with McKinsey and Company and Diageo in senior executive roles. She has also served as the chief executive of the Milk Processor Education Program in Washington DC and has been the co-owner of Bluewater Books & Charts in Florida’s Fort Lauderdale for almost 20 years.

Godfrey said: “On behalf of the shareholders and employees of Stanfords I would like to thank Tony for the tremendous enthusiasm he has shown for Stanfords and for the job that he has done whilst with the company.

“Tony has been with Stanfords for five years and has built a strong and effective management team and together we have accomplished a great deal. One of his greatest successes has been the creation of the Stanfords Travel Writers Festival and Stanfords Travel Writers Awards.”

Godfrey said she has been involved with the Stanfords business her whole life as both her father and grandfather have served as chairman of the company. She followed in their footsteps by becoming chairman in 2011.

Commenting on his time at Stanfords, Maher said: “I would like to wish every single one of the Stanfords team the very best for the future – It has been a pleasure and inspiration to work with them all – I will really miss “Team Stanfords.” As well as that I feel a massive debt of gratitude to the great authors and publishers that we have worked with over the years – it has all been an absolute pleasure.”
