They want to invest their talent in the potential that lies ahead.
Bloomington, Ind. (PRWEB) July 22, 2008
Solution Tree , a leading educational professional development company, recently gained two new executive team members. Douglas Rife, former president of Corwin Press, joins Solution Tree as president of its newly launched division, Solution Tree Press. Susan Willis Kanold, former divisional vice president of McDougal Littell, is the new director of sales.
Rife was president of Corwin Press from January 2002 to February 2008. During that time, the company's annual revenue rose significantly, and the number of published titles more than tripled.
Kanold brings 27 years of experience in sales and sales management and 16 years of publishing experience to Solution Tree. At McDougal Littell, she filled a variety of roles and was vital to the company's growth from a small textbook publishing company to part of the multibillion dollar conglomerate Houghton Mifflin.
"Susan and Douglas were motivated to make these significant steps in their careers because they see what we've accomplished at Solution Tree," says company president Jeff Jones. "They want to invest their talent in the potential that lies ahead."
