Harvest House Publishers Promotes Key Personnel
Eugene, Oregon—03/30/15—Harvest House Publishers is announcing the promotion of two key managers for the purpose of better utilizing their strengths and creating greater efficiencies and productivity within the company.
The first of these changes is the promotion of Don Sage, Manager of Financial Operations, to Senior Director of Financial Operations. In his expanded role, Sage will handle additional corporate-level responsibilities including overseeing the newly renamed Implementation Solutions department. Previously organized as two separate departments—Order Fulfillment and Information Technology—this new name and management structure will properly align these company disciplines with their financial foundation.
Along with this realignment, Stephanie Osborne, Director of Information Technology & Order Fulfillment, is being promoted to Director/Implementation Solutions and will report to Sage. Osborne’s increased responsibilities will include the oversight of the Distribution department along with the continued administration of Implementation Solutions. As these two departments already work so closely together, given the functions of order entry, customer service, and distribution, this team realignment will now provide greater synergies and efficiencies within the company.
When asked about the impact of these changes on Harvest House, President Bob Hawkins, Jr. stated, “God has gifted Harvest House with incredibly talented individuals in Don Sage and Stephanie Osborne, and I am very pleased to further utilize both of their strengths in exciting new ways. With this realignment, Harvest House will be better positioned to achieve our short and long-range goals and initiatives as we seek to blaze new trials in the years to come.”
