Mark Schoenwald has been appointed president and CEO of HarperCollins' new division, comprised of Zondervan and the newly acquired Thomas Nelson. Scott Macdonald will leave his position as president and CEO of Zondervan and will serve in an advisory role.
Formerly president and CEO of Thomas Nelson, Schoenwald will report to Brian Murray, president and CEO of HarperCollins Publishers Worldwide, and will serve on the HarperCollins executive committee.
"Mark is an experienced leader in the Christian publishing market, and we are thrilled to have him at the helm of our newly expanded Christian division," Murray said. "The new division adds further scale and balance to HarperCollins' overall portfolio, and Mark will work closely with the leadership teams of HarperCollins, Thomas Nelson and Zondervan to build on the individual strengths of each company."
"I am grateful to Scott for his leadership and professionalism during his tenure with Zondervan," Murray said. "He has achieved everything I asked him to achieve at Zondervan during a most challenging time in the company's history."
