At Penguin Random House U.S., several executives have been promoted and have joined the PRH U.S. board. As outlined in a letter to staff yesterday by Madeline McIntosh, who was named CEO in April:
Nina von Moltke has been promoted to president, director of strategic development, a newly created position, and will serve on the board. She has been with the company for 16 years and has experience with digital publishing, corporate development, author platform development and audio publishing. McIntosh said she is "not only an astute strategic thinker, she is also an outstanding advocate for creative talent and for our publishing mission."
Amanda D'Acierno has been promoted to president, publisher, Penguin Random House Audio Group and is joining the board. McIntosh commented: "The growth of audio sales has been one of the happiest trade publishing stories of the last few years, and, thanks to Amanda and her team, we have benefited considerably from that growth as market leader."
Effective June 18, Sanyu Dillon is taking on a new company-wide position as executive v-p, director, marketing strategy and consumer engagement and will join the board. She is currently executive v-p, director of marketing, for Random House.
Dillon will also assume responsibility for the consumer marketing teams that previously reported to Amanda Close, who will soon report to Jaci Updike, president, U.S. sales, in a market-development capacity.
