Gareth Cuddy

Founder and CEO, Vearsa

Gareth Cuddy is the founder and CEO of Vearsa, the #1 digital platform for book publishers, as well as one of the leading experts on ebooks and digital publishing. Prior to starting Vearsa, Gareth launched one of the first ebook stores outside the U.S.: Directebooks.com. Quickly realizing that publishers needed more help on a basic level in order to get their ebooks to market, he spent all of 2010 building ePubDirect - an online distribution platform that would allow publishers to distribute their ebooks effortlessly. ePubDirect relaunched as Vearsa in April 2015 with an expanded range of products and currently works with over 500 publishers worldwide, using smart technology to drive profitable sales, identify new markets, and turn ‘big data’ into rich market insights.
