Lynn Cully has been appointed publisher at Kensington Publishing Corp., replacing Laurie Parkin, who left the company in May 2014.

Cully originally joined Kensington in 1990 as director of sales, rising to the position of publisher before leaving in 2000. In April 2015 she returned to Kensington, again as director of sales.

“Lynn is the ideal publisher for Kensington," said president and CEO Steven Zacharius. "She’s wonderful with accounts, agents, authors and co-workers. A voracious reader with a generous heart, Lynn is extremely dedicated to the success of this company. We are very fortunate that after being gone for fifteen years, Lynn decided to come back home to Kensington.”

Cully will continue to coordinate sales as Kensington conducts its search for her replacement.
