Digital Reorganization at Random House, Inc., Part One

By Jason Boog Comment

RH_Logo_Sm.jpgIn a series of memos today, Random House, Inc. announced some wide-ranging changes at the company. Nina von Moltke, Random House’s VP of Corporate Development, will now serve as VP of Digital Publishing Development–overseeing some restructuring in the company.

CEO Markus Dohle explained the transition: “Aside from her new task of supporting the development of our digital content offerings across the divisions, Nina will also oversee the Random House Audio Publishing and Fodor’s Travel Groups. Both groups provide excellent models of successfully transitioning from analog to digital businesses, and I know that they and our traditional trade publishing groups will benefit by having them integrated into the corporate-level digital publishing team.”

At the same time, Dohle also outlined other moves. The Princeton Review, Sylvan Learning, and Prima Games imprints will now be part of the Random House Children’s Books division since they share a “core consumer base as well as a like focus on brand management and strong license partnerships.” In addition, Tricycle Books (formerly part of Crown’s Ten Speed Press) will also become part of the Children’s Books division. He noted: “Tricycle now will be a Berkeley-based imprint of Alfred A. Knopf Books for Young Readers and its frontlist and backlist will continue to be sold by Children’s Sales.”
