Constable Succeeds Ross as Crown VP and Publisher

Instead of waiting weeks and weeks for speculation to mount on who would replace Steve Ross, Crown has gone ahead and announced his replacement right away – and they are promoting within. Publishers Marketplace reports that Tina Constable will take over as vp and publisher of Crown and Crown Business and Crown Forum in July 1. She has been executive director of publicity (a successor will be hired for that position.) At the same time, director of marketing Philip Patrick will add responsibilities as vp and publisher of Three Rivers Press and publisher of e-books and digital content for the Crown Publishing Group.
