Crown has reorganized the reporting and leadership structure of its paperback imprints in the wake of Tina Pohlman’s departure to Open Road Integrated Media, announced earlier on Wednesday. The new structure, which is effective February 24, will bring Three Rivers Press and Broadway Books imprints in closer alignment with the hardcover imprints with which they are respectively associated.
Three Rivers Press will now be overseen by svp, publisher for Crown Archetype, Crown Business, Crown Forum, and Harmony Book Tina Constable, with Crown Archetype vp, editor-in-chief Mauro DiPreta handling day-to-day responsibilities for Three Rivers. Senior editor Amanda Patten will now report to DiPreta, while assistant editor Stephanie Knapp and publishing assistant Jessica Wallin will report to Patten.
Meanwhile, vp, publisher of Crown and Hogarth Molly Stern will also oversee Broadway Books, with plans to hire a “paperback veteran” to manage the day-to-day operations of the imprint. In the meantime, senior editor Alexis Washam will now move from Broadway Books to the same position for Crown & Hogarth (though she has already been acquiring books for the hardcover imprints), reporting to Stern, while Broadway editor Megan Stacey will also now report to Stern.
