Damon Reiss to lead Custom Sales
for HarperCollins Christian Publishing

(Nashville, TN) June 17, 2016—HarperCollins Christian Publishing (HCCP) announced today that Damon Reiss will lead the custom sales team and strategy for the company. As the leader of this team, Reiss will create synergies around the custom production process of bringing product to fruition, providing the team more focus around sales and driving new business.

Reiss was recently promoted to director of Bible sales in March 2016, a role designed to work alongside custom sales to develop new programs and new accounts in areas that have not yet been explored. Reiss will continue his oversight of Bible sales across all channels in addition to concentrating on custom.

Tom Knight, s-v-p of sales at HCCP, says “This area of our business continues to be a critical component of our growth plan and it is an area that makes HarperCollins Christian Publishing unique.  I am confident in Damon’s leadership and ability to continue custom’s growth.”

This decision comes after the recent passing of Scott Harvey who established the custom sales concentration for the company in 2007.
