Jean Srnecz, a 33-year veteran of Baker & Taylor and most recently senior v-p of merchandising, died Thursday night in the crash of Continental Connection Flight 3407 near Buffalo. Srnecz was a highly regarded and well-known member of the publishing industry and served on the boards of the BISG and the Educational Paperback Association. “She was the face of B&T to the publishing industry,” said B&T president Arnie Wight. Srnecz joined B&T in 1975 as a children's book buyer after spending three years in retail.
