Stacy Lellos has been appointed senior v-p and general manager for Klutz, Scholastic’s books-plus unit. She succeeds Jeff Pinsker who was named to lead the division in October 2012.
Lellos’ appointment marks a return to Scholastic where she held a variety of positions, the most recent being v-p of marketing and multi-platform publishing for Scholastic’s trade division. She left Scholastic for Toys R Us in 2013 where she was v-p for marketing.
As the newest head of Klutz, Lellos is being tasked to “build a creative team” of editors and designers to develop book-plus products and also has responsibility for all aspects of the Klutz brand and publishing program. She will report to Ellie Berger, president of Scholastic Trade Publishing.
