Bloomsbury continues to reorganize its executive ranks, following the hiring of Ian Hudson as managing director of the consumer publishing division earlier this year and the departure of Emma Hopkin at the end of 2020. In a restructuring of the consumer division at Bloomsbury USA, publishing director Cindy Loh and two others will leave at the end of February. Loh has overseen both adult and children’s publishing since late 2016.
