Oslo-based PR agency Geelmuyden Kiese has set up a publishing arm which will be financially independent from next year, with offices in Sweden, Denmark and Norway.

Oslo-based PR agency Geelmuyden Kiese has set up a publishing arm

which will be financially independent from next year, with offices in

Sweden, Denmark and Norway.



GK has used profits to publish translations of major European writers

since 1989, but has now hired four people to set up an independent

company, Geelmuyden Kiese Publishers.



The group is headed by Haakon Harket.



The project realises a long-held ambition of GK director Hans

Geelmuyden, who founded the agency ten years ago after walking out of

his job as the editor of daily newspaper, Morgen Bladet.



Geelmuyden left the paper after a quarrel with its owner over editorial

independence. He decided not to return to publishing until he could

finance his own publications.



GK Publishers will specialise in art and fiction books, and financial

newsletters.
