Stacy Lellos has been named senior vice president and general manager for the Scholastic brand, Klutz.
With her new position, Lellos will assemble a team and oversee all of the operations within Klutz. She reports directly to Ellie Berger, the president of Scholastic’s trade publishing division. Though she is no stranger to the company, prior to this appointment she served as a vice president of marketing at Toys ‘R’ Us.
Here’s more from the press release: “Stacy Lellos originally joined Scholastic in 2000 as senior brand manager and soon became director, brand management and retail marketing. She led the strategic direction for the management and marketing of the Harry Potter series across the company from 2000 to 2006 and drove cross-divisional promotions for other large franchises. In 2006, Lellos added responsibility for licensed publishing, before briefly leaving Scholastic.”
