History

Back in 1832, two brothers, Denis and James Sadlier, immigrants from Ireland, began publishing materials to meet both the spiritual and educational needs of the Irish immigrant community. This began the story of William H. Sadlier, Inc. and an entrepreneurial, family-owned company that would be passed down across the generations and would continue to innovate and publish educational and religious resources that were in demand.

With the acquisition of the Oxford Book Company in 1972, Sadlier achieved its mission of publishing textbooks in all major academic areas. Today, we are the trusted partner and solution provider to thousands of private and public schools across the world. Sadlier has produced award-winning Mathematics and English Language Arts educational programs that are customized to the needs of every type of learner.

In 1973, Sadlier published its first Spanish/Bilingual textbook. Today, Sadlier continues to be committed to providing the finest materials for the Hispanic market, such as Creemos, Creer • Celebrar • Vivir, and the all-Spanish blog, Creemos y compartimos.

The current Chairman of the Board, Frank Sadlier Dinger, and President Emeritus William Sadlier Dinger, are the great-grandsons of William H. Sadlier and direct descendants of Denis and James Sadlier. They have been recognized as leaders in educational publishing by the Association of Educational Publishers (AEP) and have been inducted into the association’s prestigious Hall of Fame for their lifetime of achievement, commitment, and dedication to education.

Sadlier’s tradition has always included strengthening the company with talent from outside the family. Chief Executive Officer and President Raymond D. Fagan, for example, joined Sadlier in 2012 as Chief Financial Officer after 25 years of media and information industry experience at leading firms such as Dun & Bradstreet, Harcourt Education Group, Interpublic Group, and The Thomson Corporation.

For over 185 years, the Sadlier family has nurtured William H. Sadlier’s original vision with integrity, creativity, and a commitment to ongoing excellence. That family tradition is felt today and will continue to help us serve our customers into the future.
