Amy Einhorn Named Henry Holt President & Publisher
Amy Einhorn has been named president and publisher of Macmillan Publishing's Henry Holt division, effective immediately. Einhorn had been executive v-p and publisher of Flatiron Books, which she joined in 2014, the year after Bob Miller founded the Macmillan division. Before that, she was head of Amy Einhorn Books at Penguin Random House. Einhorn succeeds Ben Schrank, who is leaving the company.
Einhorn will report to Macmillan president Don Weisberg, who said, "Amy's publishing acumen, keen editorial instincts, and strong author relationships make her uniquely qualified to carry on the legacy of Holt. Since arriving at Flatiron Books she has been a crucial part of their success, bringing her editorial eye and publishing expertise to the New York Times bestsellers Truly Madly Guilty and Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty, The Guest Book by Sarah Blake, Furiously Happy by Jenny Lawson, This Is How It Always Is by Laurie Frankel, I.M. by Isaac Mizrahi, and James Comey's #1 New York Times bestseller A Higher Loyalty, amongst others. I cannot imagine Holt's future being in better hands."
Einhorn commented: "I am thrilled to be moving to Henry Holt. It has such an esteemed history and list of talented authors. It is an honor to be entrusted with such a venerable publishing house. I am particularly excited to begin working with the wonderful team at Holt. I've admired so many people there for years. I can't wait to see what we'll create together."
Weisberg said that in the past year, Schrank "has been a positive and hardworking presence at Holt, helping to bring in new talent and authors. I have known and worked with Ben for a long time and have always admired his intelligence and publishing talent. I wish him all the best."
Schrank, who earlier had been publisher of Razorbill, succeeded longtime Holt head Stephen Rubin.
