Welbeck has appointed Kim Brown, formerly of Parragon Books, as vice-president of sales and marketing for North America.
Brown was most recently president for North America at Parragon and has worked in publishing and book retailing for over 25 years with experience at Barnes & Noble, Sterling Publishing and Baker & Taylor.
She said: “This is such an exciting opportunity and time to join Welbeck, working with Marcus again. The Welbeck team is so talented and I cannot wait to work with them and Two Rivers Distribution to sell our books in the US and Canada.”
Marcus Leaver, Welbeck's executive director, commented: “Mark and I are excited to add Kim’s considerable experience to our accomplished senior management team. As soon as we decided on publishing Welbeck’s list through Two Rivers Distribution we knew that Kim was the person who could help us take Welbeck to the next level in North America.”
