Vice President, Business Development, Proquest


Angela D’Agostino is the Senior Vice President of Business Development for Bowker. She joined Bowker in 1990 and has been instrumental in transforming the company from a traditional print reference publisher (Books In Print was selling 25,000 units back then) to a provider of essential data and services for publishers, book retailers, corporations and libraries throughout the world. Her responsibilities range across all markets Bowker serves and are aimed at developing the company’s long-term strategy. Angela initiated the expansion of Bowker’s product and service offerings into the sales data and business intelligence space, now collectively known as PubTrack, through in-house development and strategic acquisitions. Angela also led the development of strategic relationships with emerging players in the book world such as Google and Sony. Most recently she has been spearheading the development and execution of Bowker’s strategy around digital content.

Angela has a B.A. in English Literature from St. Mary’s College, Notre Dame and an M.B.A. in Marketing from Fairleigh Dickinson University. Bowker has been serving libraries, publishers and book retailers since 1872. Bowker’s Books In Print is the “Database of Record” for Barnes & Noble, Borders, Follett, Missouri Book Services and Sony and is used by thousands of retailers, publishers and libraries worldwide.
