Loh to depart as Bloomsbury US shuffles consumer division leadership

Bloomsbury is overhauling the structure of its consumer division executive team in the US, with publishing director Cindy Loh leaving at the end the month, according to a report on Publishers Marketplace.

Loh has overseen both adult and children’s publishing since late 2016. She will leave at the end of February, along with two other staffers.

Nancy Miller, Liese Mayer and Mary Kate Castellani will report to executive director and chief operating officer Adrienne Vaughan, who will take on the duties of publishing director.

Vaughan said: “I am implementing new strategies to further establish Bloomsbury as a leading publisher.” She added: “We thank Cindy for her considerable contribution to Bloomsbury over eight years, including championing the new direction for adult fiction, and leading the children’s division through the development of major bestselling and award-winning authors."

The move follows soon after leadership changes at the UK company's consumer publishing division, with the hiring of Ian Hudson as managing director of the division earlier this year after the departure of Emma Hopkin at the end of 2020.
