Scott Mathews, CFO for Tyndale House Ministries (THM) since 2018, will become CEO April 1, leading both Tyndale House Publishers, one of the world’s largest independent publishers of books, Bibles, and digital media, and the charitable Tyndale House Foundation.
Doug McConnell, vice chairman of the Ministries board, noted Mathews’ “experience as a Tyndale executive and his expertise in Christian publishing will be a blessing to THM at this particular time in our ministry’s journey.”
Mathews succeeds Mark Taylor, who will retire at the end of March after 48 years with the company while retaining his position as chairman of the board. McConnell praised Taylor’s leadership in Christian publishing. Tyndale House was founded in 1962 with the publication of Living Letters, the paraphrase of the New Testament Epistles written by Mark’s father, Kenneth Taylor. Tyndale House Foundation was founded in 1963 with royalties from the original title and continues to give “a majority of net income to charitable missions — more than $110 million" to date, according to the company.
Mathews joined Tyndale in 2017, as v-p for finance, after spending 13 years in a variety of research and administration roles at Calamos Investments. In 2018, he followed his father into the CFO post when Paul Mathews retired after 41 years at Tyndale.
