Ryan Chapman to Be Marketing Director at Penguin Press

Farrar, Straus and Giroux online marketing manager Ryan Chapman will serve as the new marketing director at Penguin Press.

He starts on April 23rd. Chapman blogged about the new position:

Penguin Press has a great list of authors (*cough* Zadie Smith Clay Shirky Nate Silver Thomas Pynchon *cough*) and a truly impressive roster of editors and publicists. I’m looking forward to painting with a bigger brush, as it were, and launching some nonfiction-driven pilot projects. If you see me at happy hour in the next few weeks, I apologize in advance for my nerdy enthusiasm. (And be sure to keep an eye out for some big Penguin Press news in the next month or two.)
