Adrienne Vaughan has been promoted to president of Bloomsbury Publishing USA. Vaughan first joined Bloomsbury in September 2020 as executive director and COO and took over responsibility for the company's publishing operation following the restructuring of Bloomsbury's consumer division in February 2021, which led to the departure of v-p and publishing director Cindy Loh.
In making the announcement of her new appointment, Bloomsbury commended Vaughan for her "strong leadership during a challenging time."
Bloomsbury reported double-digit gains for the fiscal year ended February 28, 2021, with revenue increasing 14% to £185.1 million ($262 million). The U.K. remains the publisher's largest market, but Bloomsbury USA now accounts for 29% of the worldwide Bloomsbury Group’s overall sales. As president, Vaughan's focuses will be on the publisher's "next chapter," which includes developing a business in America "with a strong future and significant publishing impact," the company said.
