Warner Faith/Center Street has brought on Chip McGregor to fill the new role of associate publisher, editorial. McGregor, who's agented Let's Roll author Lisa Beamer and also been an editor at Oregon's Harvest House, will complement the role of Lori Quinn (she's associate publisher, marketing), and oversee acquisitions as well as edit. Warner Faith/Center Street publisher Rolf Zettersten said the appointment will free him to handle strategic and vision issues.
The Nashville, Tenn.—based Warner unit, flush from the success of pastor Joel Osteen's Your Best Life Now, is in expansionist mode. It has two imprints and 45 titles (and hopes to get to 60 by next year); it also could, according to sources, soon be looking at publisher acquisitions.
