Chief digital officer Charlie Redmayne will leave HarperCollins to serve as the new CEO of J. K. Rowling‘s Pottermore site.

Redmayne’s last day will be on Friday, November 4th. Until the position is filled, executive vice president of operations and technology Larry Nevins will handle his responsibilities.

Redmayne had this statement: “I’m very sad to be leaving HarperCollins – it is a terrific company and I have loved my time within it. HarperCollins has made great strides in the digital world over the last few years – because it is well led and has great people. These efforts will continue at pace and I look forward to watching their future success.”
