The list is in Publishers Weekly...

But what is in store for people who were top-tier until this merger?

CEO of Penguin Random House worldwide, Markus Dohle, is on a worldwide tour to regional offices, undoubtedly to break good or bad news.

There is a surprise already.  Gabrielle Coyle who was named CEO of Asia-Pacific (including Australia and New Zealand) and Gaurav Shrinagesh, CEO of Penguin Random India, are going to be overseen by the deputy CEO of Penguin Random House U.K., Ian Hudson.

The rest of the list:
