Cary Goldstein, who was relieved of his job as publisher of Twelve in April, is joining his old boss, Jon Karp, at Simon & Schuster. Goldstein has been named v-p, executive director of publicity and senior editor at the flagship imprint, and will start at the publisher on June 3. In his new role Goldstein will be overseeing the publicity department and, S&S said, acquiring "a select number" of titles.
With Goldstein's hire, Tracey Guest is leaving the company. Guest, who is leaving S&S on May 31, was director of publicity. She has been at S&S since 1998 and has, during her time at the publisher, worked on campaigns for, among others, Bob Woodward, Paula Deen, Clive Davis and Hunter S. Thompson.
