Richard Nash To Leave Soft Skull and Counterpoint


Richard Nash, the Editorial Director of Soft Skull Press and Executive Editor of Counterpoint, is set to depart the company on March 10, 2009.

In the announcement, Counterpoint CEO and Publisher Charlie Winton reassured readers that the company would keep publishing the Soft Skull Press imprint and keep the New York offices open. In 2007, Counterpoint acquired Soft Skull Press.

In a statement, Nash said the transition helped the indie press survive a tough 2008: “Having worked with Charlie and our colleagues to save and rebuild Soft Skull, and having succeeded even in the face of the worst downturn the industry has ever experienced, I now feel it is time to let Soft Skull move onto the next phase of its existence, and to allow me to take on the new challenges our industry is facing.”
