“Part of our strategy around opening an office at MediaCityUK is to grow our audiobook production business and target the significant UK publishing market, which is moving into audiobooks. Our collaboration with Audio Always has been one of the first outcomes to come out of our move here and we’re delighted,” commented Helen Shaw, founder and managing director of Athena Media.

Athena Media was launched 10 years ago in Dublin, specialising in audio, video and digital publishing. It expanded into MediaCityUK earlier this year.

“Athena Media has been a phenomenal success story in Ireland and we’re delighted that already the business is forging successful collaborations within The Greenhouse. This is exactly the kind of ethos we want to encourage within the SME community here,” added Stephen Wild, managing director of MediaCityUK.
