Major Restructuring at Crown Publishing Group; Shaye Areheart Books Closed

crown.jpegToday Crown Publishing Group detailed a major reorganization at the Random House division, changes helmed by publisher Maya Mavjee since her December appointment. The division will be divided into three editorial units: “general interest trade nonfiction and fiction; branded/category books; and four-color and lifestyle books, encompassing our cookbook, design, syle, crafts, and visual arts titles.”

Along with the shift, the Shaye Areheart Books imprint will be closed–but publisher Shaye Areheart will continue to serve as editor-at-large. Broadway Books was hardest hit by the reshuffling as publisher Diane Salvatore and senior editor Lorraine Glennnon will both step down.

In addition, the Crown Publishing Group publicity department will now be unified with one leader, and executive director of publicity Katie Wainwright will leave the company. Finally, the publisher has named Tina Constable publisher of the new Crown Archetype imprint, Harmony Books, Crown Forum, and Crown Business (a new imprint that combines Crown and Broadway Business). Also, Tina Pohlman will serve as publisher of Three Rivers Press and Broadway Paperbacks

The whole memo is embedded after the jump.
