The marketing team for Crown Archetype is being re-jiggered, Donna Passannante, v-p executive director of market for Crown, said "to create even more focuse , specialized teams with expertise within our respective core categories." The categories Crown Archetype publishes in are: health, wellness, self-improvement, and spirituality (Harmony Books); entertainment/pop culture, sports, and humor (Archetype and Three Rivers Press); business and innovation (Crown Business); and conservative politics (Crown Forum).
With the shifts Meredith McGinnis and Julie Cepler have new role and titles.

Lauren Velasquez is currently marketing assistant in the ad/promo team and is keeping the same title, and moving to the Crown Archetype team. Tara Gilbride remains v-p, director of marketing and publicity for Crown Business.
