16.01.13 | Charlotte Williams
Egmont USA has appointed Andrea Cascardi to the new combined role of managing director and publisher.
Cascardi joins from the Transatlantic Literary Agency, where she has represented authors and illustrators including Newbery winner Clare Vanderpool. Before that, she was a children's publisher, beginning in the editorial department at Houghton Mifflin and most recently as associate publishing director at Random House Children's Books for the Knopf and Crown imprints.
Managing director at Egmont Press, Cally Poplak, who has been managing the US business from London, said: "I'm delighted that Andrea is joining us to take on this new combined role. She has the strategic vision, business experience and creative background to accelerate Egmont's growth in the US, and I'm very much looking forward to working with her to build on our first few years."
