And the CEO of Penguin Random House Asia Pacific is Gabrielle Coyne.
Back in 2003, Gabrielle Coyne (picture taken in 2011) was a mere book publicist, a few months into her job. In the intervening years the young Australian zoomed into the top job, but news items about her are surprisingly scarce. She has a linked-in page ... but otherwise her profile is low.
That, most probably, is due to become history. The future course of Penguin Random, according to yesterday's announcement by global CEO Markus Dohle, is going to be managed by a committee ... and Ms Coyne's name features prominently on that influential list.
And here it is:
Núria Cabutí; Gina Centrello, president and publisher, Random House Publishing Group; Tony Chirico, president, Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group; Gabrielle Coyne; John Duhigg; Leslie Gelbman, president, Mass Market Paperbacks, Penguin Group U.S.; Ian Hudson; Barbara Marcus, president and publisher, Random House Children’s Books; Brad Martin; Maya Mavjee, president and publisher, Crown Publishing Group; Madeline McIntosh; Sonny Mehta, Chairman and editor-in-chief, Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group; Susan Petersen Kennedy, president, Penguin Group U.S.; Andrew Phillips, CEO, Author Solutions; Frank Steinert; Don Weisberg, president, Penguin Young Readers Group U.S.; Tom Weldon; and Coram Williams.
