People: Applebaum Takes Emeritus Role at PRH

Publishers Lunch

At Penguin Random House, now entering his forty-third year with the company, Stuart Applebaum will step aside from his current role and took on a position "that is as unique as he is," ceo Markus Dohle writes: Emeritus evp, corporate communications.

Claire von Schilling is being promoted to svp, director, corporate communications, leading external and internal communications, branding, and corporate social responsibility, overseeing the US communications team and coordinating global communications efforts. She will report to Dohle.

Applebaum, who remains at PRH full-time, will advise Schilling and "work with our colleagues on key communications issues and opportunities." Dohle writes to colleagues of Applebaum: "On behalf of our company, including our publishers, editors, sales representatives, and corporate managers, and those several generations and legacy companies before us, Stuart has presented and explained -- with clarity, intelligence and farsightedness -- our news, our vision, and our values to the wider world. What stands out to me most about Stuart is not just the decades and volumes of accomplishment from his 24/7 work ethic, but his ongoing drive and commitment to our company. I know you join me in expressing immense appreciation and admiration for him."
