Timothy Paulson is joining HarperCollins Christian Publishing as v-p and publisher of Nelson Books, a Thomas Nelson imprint, effective February 4.
Paulson has more than 18 years of experience in publishing, most recently with Kalmbach Media and earlier, for most of his career, at 1517 Media. At 1517 Media, he created imprints, developed digital platform strategies and built an animation studio, among other accomplishments.
He replaces Brian Hampton, who was promoted last year to senior v-p and group publisher for HarperCollins Christian Publishing. Hampton commented: "Tim's rich experience as a publisher, coaching leader, innovator, brand creator, and marketer make him a great fit as the leader of this team. Taking over responsibility for an imprint that is having a big run in the marketplace is a unique challenge requiring confidence and humility, and Tim brings both to our company."
