Dan Reynolds, CEO and president of Workman imprints Storey and Timber, has been named CEO of Workman Publishing Company, effective immediately. The appointment follows the departure of group publisher Bob Miller in March 2013, and the death of founder Peter Workman in early April of the same year.
Reynolds has been with the company since 2001, when Workman purchased Storey from founders John and Martha Storey. Under his leadership, according to the publisher, Storey has had "consistent revenue growth year over year."
Carolan R. Workman, Peter Workman's widow, will continue in her role as executive chair of the board and president, and Katie Workman, his daughter, has been named v-p of strategic marketing and business development, and will report to Reynolds. The two have been directing Workman since the death of Peter and Miller's departure.
Also newly reporting to Reynolds are COO Glenn D’Agnes, chief sales and marketing officer Walter Weintz, and the five imprint publishers, including Susan Bolotin who has been appointed publisher and editorial director of
the Workman imprint, and Andrew Beckman, who has been named publisher of Timber Press. Deborah Balmuth, publisher, Storey ,Publishing, Elisabeth Scharlatt, publisher, Algonquin Books, and Ann Bramson, publisher, Artisan Books will also report to Reynolds.
“Early in my career I admired Workman’s energy and uniqueness in the marketplace," said Reynolds. "Since 2001 I’ve had the good fortune to work side by side with Peter Workman and the rest of his talented team. Storey and Timber blossomed due to this partnership. Now I have a wonderful opportunity to lead this innovative company, to collaborate daily with some of the most creative people in publishing today, and to continue the tradition Peter Workman built." Reynolds will relocate to Workman's new York headquarters October 1.
