Doug Jones has been promoted to senior v-p/deputy publisher of the Harper group, a new position in which he will work with HarperCollins senior v-p and publisher Jonathan Burnham to oversee publishing for Harper, Harper Business, Harper Wave, Harper Design, Amistad, Broadside, Harper Perennial and Harper Paperbacks. All marketing and publicity for the Harper imprints and lines will report to him.
Jones was formerly senior v-p, sales at HarperCollins, where he oversaw sales for all adult imprints and led the teams dealing with Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Prior to joining HarperCollins, Jones held marketing positions at Putnam and Riverhead, worked at Random House for 12 years, and was v-p, sales director at Crown Publishing Group. His first book industry job was as manager for Brazos Bookstore in Houston, Tex.
Burnham commented: "Doug's deep knowledge of the book trade and experience in sales and marketing make him uniquely qualified to bring a holistic approach to the Harper publishing program."
With this change, senior v-p/associate publisher Kathy Schneider is leaving HarperCollins. Burnham thanked her for her "remarkable work during her time at Harper."
