Crown Publishing Reorganizes
Crown Publishing Group has been reorganized in a way that president and publisher Maya Mavjee said aims to "create an even sharper direction and momentum for each of our publishing areas as we enhance creative collaboration across the Crown Publishing Group while maintaining the diverse category focus that has been a cornerstone of our recent success."
Molly Stern, who has been senior v-p, publisher for Crown Publishers, Hogarth and Archetype, will be responsible for the group's entire narrative-based general-interest nonfiction and fiction publishing program, adding Broadway Books and Three Rivers Press to her purview. Each of the imprints will maintain their separate identities, lists and editorial teams, as well as their own dedicated marketing, publicity and design support teams.
Aaron Wehner has been promoted to senior v-p, publisher, Clarkson Potter, Ten Speed Press and Harmony Books, which comprise the group's culinary, health, lifestyle and four-color illustrated books program. Clarkson Potter, Ten Speed Press and Harmony Books will also maintain their separate identities, publishing lists and editorial teams, as well as their dedicated marketing, publicity and design support teams.
Pam Krauss is stepping down as senior v-p, publisher, Clarkson Potter, and will develop her own line of books within Potter that will reflect her tastes and interests in the culinary and lifestyle areas.
Tina Constable, who has been responsible for Archetype, Harmony Books, Three Rivers Press, Crown Business and Crown Forum, will now be senior v-p, publisher, of Crown Business, Crown Forum and Religious Publishing (which includes WaterBrook Multnomah, Convergent and Image).
Steve Cobb continues as president and publisher of WaterBrook Multnomah, Convergent and Image, and now reports to Constable.
