Steve Ross Leaves Crown to Run Collins

  • SHARES

By Carmen

We were forwarded the news with the subject header “HOLY MOTHERFREAKING POOP” and that pretty much sums up my reaction to the news that Crown Senior Vice President and Publisher Steve Ross has been hired as president and publisher of their Collins division, reporting to Brian Murray and starting in July. He replaces Joe Tessitore, who is retiring from the position this summer. Murray says in the announcement, “The combination of Steve’s publishing acumen, business savvy and experience is ideally suited to lead Collins to the next level. I look forward to working closely with Steve to build Collins into a market leader in non-fiction publishing and to identify new areas of growth for the company.”
