Katie Hope will join Princeton University Press (PUP) as marketing director this summer.
Hope will lead PUP’s global marketing and sales teams in Princeton and Oxford, while working closely with the Press’s Beijing office.
PUP director Christie Henry said: “The alchemy of Katie’s experience, the calibre of the Press’s team, and the intellectual property our authors around the world entrust to us to market and sell is inspiring to contemplate. We admire and have learned from the impact of her creative leadership at MIT Press, within the AUPresses community, and far beyond. We are eagerly anticipating the collaborations ahead and the many ways in which Katie will help us to write our next PUP chapter.”
Previously director of marketing and author relations at the MIT Press, Hope has 25 years experience in the industry. Before joining the MIT Press, she started as a sales rep and later marketing manager for McGraw-Hill Education, working in senior leadership positions across trade and scholarly publishing, including as vice president, director of marketing for adult trade and reference and vice president, director of marketing for the higher education division at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.
Hope added: “I am truly honored to join PUP, an organisation I have admired for so long and one that possesses such an exceptional marketing and sales team. I am profoundly excited to be a part of this dynamic university press especially at this pivotal moment in the world of global publishing. I see immense opportunities to expand the reach of PUP’s superior editorial content and groundbreaking marketing initiatives.”
Hope will start at PUP in June, reporting to Christie Henry as a member of the Press’s senior leadership.
