Macmillan has named Amy Einhorn president and publisher of Henry Holt, effective immediately. Einhorn, who was previously executive v-p and publisher of Macmillan’s Flatiron Books division, will succeed Ben Schrank, who is leaving the company.
Einhorn said she was “thrilled to be moving to Henry Holt. It has such an esteemed history and list of talented authors. It is an honor to be entrusted with such a venerable publishing house.”
Schrank joined Holt November 1, 2018 as senior v-p and publisher, reporting to then Holt publisher and president Steve Rubin; on May 1, 2019 he added the duties of president.
Before joining Flatiron Books in 2014, Einhorn headed her own imprint, Amy Einhorn Books, at Penguin Random House. Among the bestselling titles she has published since joining Flatiron Books are Truly Madly Guilty and Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty, I.M. by Isaac Mizrahi, and James Comey’s A Higher Loyalty.
Einhorn will report to Macmillan president Don Weisberg, who said about the appointment: “Amy’s publishing acumen, keen editorial instincts, and strong author relationships make her uniquely qualified to carry on the legacy of Holt.”
