Tim Sullivan Joining University of California Press as Executive Director

Effective in February, Tim Sullivan is joining the University of California Press as executive director. He has been the editorial director of Harvard Business Review Press since 2011 and earlier had been executive editor. He also served as a senior editor for HBR magazine and as a member of the senior management team for the HBR Group. He has worked, the University of California Press said, "to transform the press, re-focusing its publishing program, expanding the reach of its authors' ideas, and improving its financial results."

Susan Carlson, Vice Provost for Academic Personal and Programs in the University of California's Office of the President, said, "Tim's ability to work with current and prospective authors to advance the global recognition of their works is especially anticipated and welcomed."

Sullivan said, "I couldn't be more excited to help lead as singular a publisher as the University of California Press. I deeply respect its history and mission, and look forward to creating its future with its exceptional staff."

Sullivan has also worked at Princeton University Press, Penguin and Basic Books and written two books, The Org: Understanding the Underlying Logic of Your Office (Twelve) and The Inner Lives of Markets: How People Shape Them--and How They Shape Us (Public Affairs).
