Carroll & Graf cofounder Kent Carroll is stepping down as publisher and editor-in-chief to pursue other publishing ventures. He will continue as a consultant through June to supervise the spring list titles that he acquired. Herman Graf remains president of the company and will assume the title of publisher.

C&G was founded in 1983 and in 1999 was sold to Avalon Publishing, a division of Publishers Group Inc. Susan Reich, president of Avalon, said, "I appreciate the contribution Kent has made in publishing a quality list. We look forward to building on the strong editorial base that Kent and Herman have established."
