The ABPBC has announced Heidi Waechtler as the incoming executive director. Heidi is currently the Managing Editor at Coach House Books in Toronto and will begin her tenure with the Association on September 6th.
Speaking of her new position, Waechtler said, “I’m excited to return to the province where I started working in publishing, and for the opportunity to use my industry experience to help effect wider change for the BC-owned sector. Under the thoughtful and indefatigable leadership of Margaret Reynolds, the ABPBC has fostered a thriving book culture in the province through advocacy work and capacity-building initiatives. Margaret is a tough act to follow, but I look forward to working with the board and the membership to continue navigating the ever-changing publishing climate, and to exploring new opportunities for the association.”
