Michael Morrison to Helm HarperStudio After Bob Miller’s Departure

harperStudioHeader.jpgToday HarperCollins CEO Brian Murray announced that Michael Morrison–the company’s president and publisher of U.S. General Books and Canada–will lead HarperStudio after the departure of current publisher Bob Miller in May.

Murray had this statement: “At a time of great change in publishing, Bob built HarperStudio into a new innovative publishing imprint based on profit shares with authors and non returnable book sales with retailers. It was recently named one of the most innovative companies by Fast Company magazine … I thank Bob for his contributions to HarperCollins and ask you to join me in wishing Bob much success in his new role.”

As we reported earlier, Miller will head to Workman Publishing as Group Publisher–supervising Workman, Algonquin, and Artisan imprints alongside Workman CEO Peter Workman.

The entire memo is embedded after the jump.
