Inside Kobo HQ
As president and chief content officer of Kobo, Michael Tamblyn is committed to reshaping the global book business. After the company was acquired by Japanese e-commerce firm Rakuten in 2011, Kobo’s offices got a whole lot more international. With the e-reading service’s operations in 15 other countries and its parent company in Tokyo, Tamblyn guesses he spends one-third of his time travelling outside the headquarters in Toronto’s Liberty Village. He showed us how he prepares for a busy travel schedule while still carving out time for a juicy read.
