Random House Reorganization

Penguin Random House has announced plans to separate Crown Publishing Group (CPG), making it independent from the Random House Publishing Group (RHPG). Crown was previously separate before being absorbed in 2018.

The newly reorganized Random House Publishing Group will include Random House, the Dial Press, Hogarth, the Modern Library, One World, Ballantine Bantam Dell/Delacorte, Random House Worlds, Harmony/Rodale, Convergent, and WaterBrook & Multnomah. The new Crown Publishing Group will include Crown, Currency, Clarkson Potter, and Ten Speed Press.

Sanya Dillion, who had served as chief marketing officer for PRH, has been named president of RHPG, and David Drake has been promoted to president of CPG.

Nihar Malaviya, interim CEO of PRH, said,

Books and the people who make them are at the heart of what we do. Our editors’ ability to aggressively pursue the works they are most passionate about, and the autonomy and independence of our divisions and imprints, is what drives our business and ensures our success.
