Pushkin Press c.o.o Seegmuller to leave

Pushkin Press’ associate publisher and c.o.o. Stephanie Seegmuller is to leave the company after three years.

Seegmuller, who joined Pushkin from Penguin in April 2012, said it was time to “find fresh challenges”.

During her time at Pushkin, Seegmuller has been involved in the launch of new imprints Pushkin Children’s Books, ONE, and Pushkin Vertigo. Her acquisitions include the Oska Pollock children’s series.

She also helped move the business on to a number of key systems, including Bibliolive, Xero and Royalty Tracker, and oversaw a UK warehouse move and the move of North American distribution to Penguin Random House in July 2014. 

Adam Freudenheim, publisher and m.d. of Pushkin Press, said: “It's been a great pleasure working so closely with Stephanie these last three years beginning to turn around and grow Pushkin, and I believe we've really begun to put Pushkin on the literary map in a major way, here in the UK and internationally. I wish Stephanie all the best in her future endeavours.” 

Seegmuller said: “I am very proud to have helped transform Pushkin Press over the last three years. I feel privileged to have been able to both publish books that I believe in and also deal with all the operational challenges of a growing business. Having achieved all the goals I set myself three years ago, I feel it is time for me to find fresh challenges and I look forward to seeing Pushkin Press continuing to grow and publish excellent international literature.”
