The Post-Restructuring Shuffle

hmcologo.jpgThis week the publishing industry saw some serious post-restructuring shuffling as literary types leapfrogged from Henry Holt to Germany’s Suhrkamp Verlag, Penguin Press to Broadway Books, and HarperCollins to Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.

The NY Observer reported that Henry Holt editor Webb Younce decided to move to Germany to become the English-language editor at Suhrkamp Verlag. His former EIC Marjorie Braman is already thinking about replacements, a rare opening in the publishing recession. In addition, the NY Observer reported that Vanessa Mobley left Penguin Press earlier this year, and is now headed to Broadway Books to serve as senior editor.

Finally, GalleyCat noted earlier this week that former Collins division publisher Bruce Nichols will now serve as adult trade and reference publisher at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.
