Flatiron Books publisher Amy Einhorn has been made president and publisher of Holt, effective immediately, reporting to Don Weisberg. Ben Schrank, who was hired a year ago to train as Steve Rubin’s successor, will leave the company.
Weisberg says in the announcement: “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… I cannot imagine Holt’s future being in better hands.” He also notes, “In the last year, Ben has been a positive and hardworking presence at Holt, helping to bring in new talent and author. 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.”
Einhorn comments, “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.”
