“In our old office there was a sign at the reception desk that said ‘Workman Publishing: Books, Calendars, Parties,’ and I remember that before the company got so big and the industry got so complicated, we had a lot of parties. It was a much more informal company. As the business has grown, we’ve had to keep up with the digital world and the different ways that books are read and distributed. But we still have parties.”
Workman Publishing Company, a medium-sized independent publisher, is the creator of award-winning and fun, educational children’s titles!
Workman Publishing has named ceo and president of their Storey Publishing and Timber Press imprint Dan Reynolds as ceo of Workman. Reynolds will "transition into the role immediately, and relocate to New York City full-time on October 1." He joined the company in 2001 when Workman purchased Storey. Reynolds takes over following the death of founder Peter Workman in April 2013. Former Workman group publisher Bob Miller, thought to have been in line to lead the company, was dismissed abruptly just days before Workman's death last year.
The announcement says: "Reynolds's mandate in this new role is to grow all five imprints of Workman Publishing: Workman, Algonquin Books, Artisan Books, Storey Publishing, and Timber Press. He will be immersed in the generation of ideas and packaging, while finding new ways to get the company’s rich list of books and authors into different types of accounts. Along with the publishers of each imprint and the senior leadership team, Reynolds will develop and publish books in formats that are as surprising and pleasurable as their content is rich. Carolan Workman says, "This is absolutely brilliant. Katie and I are thrilled. It's a perfect match."
