Realignment for Random House UK

In Britain, The Random House Group has announced a number of changes and promotions as part of the Group’s growth strategy as it looks to the next stage in its development. First, Board Director Richard Cable, is to develop a new publishing portfolio. In this new role he will seek out “exciting and profitable new publishing enterprises” and further announcements should be expected during the year. But the big news is that the CHA arm – which include Century, Hutchinson, William Heinemann, Arrow, Random House Audio and Random House Books – will split into an entirely separate entity from the CCV line – which comprises Jonathan Cape, Chatto & Windus, Harvill Secker, Yellow Jersey Press, Vintage and Pimlico.

CHA will be led by Susan Sandon, who is newly promoted to Managing Director. In this new role, she will report to Peter Bowron, Group Managing Director, who takes on this responsibility alongside his current portfolio. CCV will be helmed by Cable with Dan Franklin acting as publisher for the whole line.
