Simon & Schuster Names Jonathan Karp C.E.O. – Severskiy (News)

Simon & Schuster, one of the country’s major publishing houses, named Jonathan Karp its new chief executive on Thursday, succeeding Carolyn Reidy, who died earlier this month.

Mr. Karp, previously the president and publisher of Simon & Schuster’s adult publishing division, will be charged with leading the company through a tumultuous period, as it remains up for sale during a pandemic.

A longtime editor who has been with Simon & Schuster for 10 years and was considered a natural successor to Ms. Reidy, Mr. Karp oversaw the publication of “Steve Jobs” by Walter Isaacson, “Born to Run” by Bruce Springsteen” and “Frederick Douglass” by David Blight, which won a Pulitzer Prize in History.
