Pottermore names CEO
Harpercollins chief digital officer Charlie Redmayne has been named ceo of Pottermore, for which he will return to London full-time. Pottermore chairman Neil Blair said in a statement that Redmayne is "a formidable talent in both the digital and publishing spheres", and in combination with his "entrepreneurial spirit" made him the ideal candidate for the job. As previously reported, Pottermore delayed its site launch, as well as the release of Harry Potter digital editions, from this fall to sometime in 2012.
