|Quality Chess was founded in 2004 by chess fans IM Ari Ziegler, GM Jacob Aagaard and GM John Shaw. The ambition was to provide the chess public with books with an angle more on quality than on marketing. This has been fulfilled as Mihail Marin won the ChessCafe.com book of the year 2005 for Learn from the Legends and Igor Nor & Alik Gershon won the ECF book of the year 2007 for San Luis 2005.
In 2007 Ari Ziegler left Quality Chess to become president of the Swedish chess federation and the company moved to the UK. His energy and initiative brought a consensus to Swedish chess, of which Ari can be very proud.
In April 2009 IM Andrew Greet joined Quality Chess in the post of Sales and Marketing. GM Colin McNab joined the team in November 2010.
