James Jordan is retiring from Columbia University Press. Jordan, who is currently president and director of CUP, is stepping down in September.
Jordan joined CUP in 2004, leaving his post at John Hopkin University Press, where he was director. Before John Hopkins he was at Norton. He also served on the board of the professional and scholarly publishing division of the Association of American Publishers.
CUP currently releases roughly 160 titles per year and the university--specifically the provost working with the press's board--is looking for someone to replace Jordan.
