History The company was founded in 1807, during the Jefferson presidency. In the early years, Wiley was best known for the works of Washington Irving, Edgar Allan Poe, Herman Melville, and other 19th century American literary giants. By the turn of the century, Wiley was established as a leading publisher of scientific and technical information. (A more detailed history is available.) President and CEO William J. Pesce, Wiley's tenth President and CEO, was appointed in May 1998. Will joined the company in 1989 and previously served as Chief Operating Officer; Executive Vice President, Educational and International Group; Senior Vice President, Educational and International Group; and Senior Vice President, Educational Publishing. Before joining Wiley, he was President of W.B. Saunders, one of the world's leading medical publishers, in addition to other management and planning positions at CBS when they were a publishing business. He has a MBA in Finance from NYU's Stern School of Business. Stock Exchange/ Ticker Symbols New York Stock Exchange: JWa and JWb. The company went public in 1962 and was listed on the NYSE in 1995. Operations Wiley is a global publisher of print and electronic products, specializing in scientific, technical, and medical books and journals; professional and consumer books and subscription services; and textbooks and other educational materials for undergraduate and graduate students as well as lifelong learners. Wiley publishes in a variety of formats. The company provides "must-have" content to targeted communities of interest. Wiley's deep reservoir of quality content, constantly replenished, offers a tremendous source of competitive advantage. Technology is making this content more accessible to customers worldwide and is adding value for them by delivering it in interactive and/or fully searchable formats. Approximately 25% of global revenue is currently Web-enabled; we expect to increase that figure to about 40% within the next three years. Global Enterprise With about 3,500 employees worldwide, Wiley has operations in the United States, Europe (England, Germany and Russia), Canada, Asia, and Australia. The Company has U.S. publishing, marketing, and distribution centers in New Jersey, California, Virginia, Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio. Wiley's worldwide headquarters are located in Hoboken, New Jersey, just across the river from Manhattan. Wiley content travels well. Approximately 40% of the company's revenue is generated outside the United States.
