Lynn Bond, who joined Kensington Publishing last summer as director of sales and new business development, has left the company to become CEO of Book Club of America. Bond succeeds BCA founder Albert Haug, who will remain a major investor in the remainder house but will have no operating duties.

Bond's industry experience includes a stint as president and publisher of Random House Value Publishing, her last position before joining Kensington. According to BCA, Bond's arrival "shepherds in a new era of growth at BCA, which will focus on new publisher relationships, expanded channels of distribution and promotional publishing opportunities."

No one had been named to fill Bond's sales spot at Kensington by press time last week.
