David Moldawer Leaves Amazon Publishing

Amazon Publishing senior editor David Moldawer is headed to the online education start-up creativeLIVE to serve as director of business. He will still be based in New York City.

Moldawer joined Amazon in September 2011. Previously, he had served as an editor at McGraw-Hill Business. He explained his new role in an email:

I will be working with many of the same authors I once edited or sought to acquire, only this time they will be teaching live courses on business subjects … Authors like Tim Ferriss, Ramit Sethi, and Ryan Holiday have already taught creativeLIVE courses to tens of thousands of viewers around the world, and many more business experts are on the way. So I’ve left book publishing, but I will still be an active part of the industry in many ways–I also hope to use creativeLIVE to sell a ton of our experts’ books!
