Christine Ragasa, previously the director of publicity for Hyperion Books, has been named executive director of publicity and content strategy at Skyhorse Publishing, effective immediately. Ragasa joins in this newly-created role as part of a reorganization and expansion of the company, and will report to president and publisher Tony Lyons.

“I’m thrilled that Christine Ragasa will be joining my leadership team at Skyhorse,” said Lyons. “She brings a new level of publicity expertise, high-level talent, strategic vision, solid management experience, and a stellar track record to the company as we move from a small, independent publishing house into a larger one.”

While at Hyperion, Ragasa worked on campaigns for The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch with Jeff Zaslow, The Tender Bar by J.R. Moehringer, The Long Tail by Chris Anderson and Not On Our Watch by Don Cheadle.

Ragasa said she felt "fortunate to be given the opportunity to build on Skyhorse’s current success as one of the fastest growing publishing houses in the industry," and that she looks forward to "shaping the company’s presence in this competitive marketplace, creating new and rich experiences for the reading community, and unlocking the potential of Skyhorse and the team to evolve in a much stronger and impactful way.”
