STEVE COBB TO LEAVE WATERBROOK MULTNOMAH
Crown Publishing Group announces that Steve Cobb has decided that he is ready to embark on the next chapter of his life and will be retiring in March 2015. In his capacity as President and Publisher of WaterBrook Multnomah, Steve has provided inspiring and dedicated leadership for our religion publishing program for nearly twenty years. Steve joined our company in 1996 as a founding executive of WaterBrook, when the imprint was launched as an autonomous evangelical Christian publishing division of then Bantam Doubleday Dell. He subsequently played an instrumental role in the purchase of Harold Shaw Publishers in 2000 and the acquisition of Multnomah Publishers in 2006—both of which contributed to the dramatic growth of our Christian front and backlist program.
