As part of its ongoing reorganization, B&H Publishing has added four new sales positions and promoted one of its own. Joseph Glorioso, who headed phone sales for B&H, will now be CBA key accounts representative. New additions include Jennifer Dibble, who will manage the Family Christian Stores account; Jim Clark, who will lead the CBA independent sales team; Jackson Moser, who will oversee outbound phone sales for the CBA independent stores channel; and Jessica Wigton, who will work directly with B&N, BAM, Amazon, and Baker & Taylor.
B&B Media Group has changed its name to The Barnabas Agency, to reflect a broadening of its services beyond publicity and public relations to include platform development, branding, and communications. The change is effective immediately.
Barbour Publishing reports it has exceeded sales goals for its Moms, Dads, Grads 2014 Mega Promotion, which began in February. Bill Westfall, v-p of sales, says sales rose 7 percent over last year for the Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and Graduation selling season and the Barbour is already out of stock on several of the titles. Each participating store received a floor display to showcase products, along with discounted prices, extended dating, and free freight.
Bethany Press International, the publishing division of the Bethany International ministry organization, has launched ChristianPrint.com, an online portal for commercial printing. Using proprietary web-to-print software, the site offers publishers, ministries, churches, and individuals online print ordering for products such as business cards, brochures, booklets, sell sheets, banners, and more. According to Pete Larson, resident of Bethany Press International, the site offers “a robust set of instructions to help even the novice create and upload print-ready files.” Proceeds from every product sold through the site will be used to support the ministries of Bethany International.
