Simon & Schuster restructured today, promoting Brian Belfiglio to vice president and director of publicity of both the Scribner and Touchstone publicity departments.
Touchstone director of publicity Marcia Burch will depart on February 11. Both moves were part of a reorganization that began at the publisher in October.
Here’s more about the reorganization from Scribner Publishing Group president Susan Moldow: “In an area of our business that invites much hand-wringing, Brian brings an admirable degree of level-headedness, focus, and teamwork to the job. His ability to corral consensus, manage systems, and rally the troops, not to mention his stellar relations with media contacts, will now benefit books and authors on behalf of both the Scribner and Touchstone imprints.”
