Julia Posen has resigned as EVP and commercial director at Walker Books Group. In a statement, the UK publisher said Posen is stepping down from her role in order to pursue new opportunities in the international marketplace.
In her eight years with Walker Books Group, Posen was responsible for integrating the company’s in-house licensing division into its core branded publishing business. She also served as executive producer on the animated adaptation of We’re Going on a Bear Hunt.
Posen first joined Walker in 2010 to oversee marketing/PR teams and lead the commercial and promotional activity for brands like Guess How Much I Love You? and Where’s Wally?.
