Adam Rothberg has been promoted to senior vice president of corporate communications at Simon & Schuster.
Rothberg has served as VP of corporate communications at the publisher since 1999. He first joined the company in 1985, working as a publicity assistant and then director of publicity at Pocket Books. In the mid-1990s, he joined Villard Books/Random House, serving as director of publicity and then as associate publisher before returning to Simon & Schuster.
CEO Carolyn K. Reidy praised Rothberg: “He is cool under the pressure of deadlines, and brings to the job a diplomat’s ability to reconcile disparate agendas when working on projects with multiple partners. His well-deserved reputation as a straight shooter has made him a trusted counselor on communication and general business questions in every corner of Simon & Schuster, from our publishing and operations units to our corporate staff and international companies, and at CBS, where he works closely with his communications counterparts at both corporate and divisional levels.”
