Cengage to Name CEO
Ron Dunn, Cengage CEO since 2007, will step down from that role and David Shaffer will retire as company chairman as well as from the board September 30. Dunn will step down once a successor has been named, which is expected soon.

Like W.W. Norton and Berrett-Koehler Publishers in San Francisco, Chelsea Green Publishing has become an employee-owned company. Staff now own 80% of the publisher’s stock. The company will continue to be run by founder Margo Baldwin.
