Nancy Paulsen has been named to succeed Phyllis Fogelman as president and publisher of Dial Books for Young Readers. Fogelman was given her own imprint at Penguin Putnam last month. Paulsen will continue in her role as president and publisher of Putnam.
With Paulsen's appointment, Putnam's PaperStar paperback imprint will become a "subimprint" of Puffin Books; both lines will be overseen by Puffin president and publisher Tracy Tang. PaperStar editor Susan Kochan will now be an editor for Putnam.
The changes at Dial also resulted in the departure of Skip Skwarek, associate publisher, and Ann Finnell, a designer.
