Perseus Books Group announced what ceo David Steinberger calls “a strategically important new hire that reflects our profound commitment to our people.” Starting today, David Bronstein joins the company in the new position of chief talent officer, reporting to Steinberger. Bronstein has worked previously at Omnicom Media, Universal Music and MTV Networks. HR director Lindsey Pullen will report to Bronstein.
He is charged with developing a more systemmatic approach to “attracting, developing and retaining the most capable people at every level of the company,” which currently employees approximately 600 people across all locations. Steinberger says that with “limitless opportunities to pursue” in these dynamic times, “the talent of your people is the fundamentally the driver.”
