Simon & Schuster has combined the Scribner and Touchstone publicity departments, both of which will now report to Brian Belfiglio, v-p, director of publicity, effective February 19. As a result of the reorganization, Marcia Burch, v-p, director of publicity for Touchstone, is leaving the company on February 15.

The combination of the publicity departments follows last year's restructuring of the S&S adult publishing groups that created the Scribner Publishing Group.

Belfiglio has been with Scribner since 2007 and has handled publicity for Steve Martin, Larua Bush, Stephen King, among many others.
