Washington, D.C.The Salem Books imprint of Regnery Publishing announced on March 2nd that Jennifer Valk has been promoted from Senior Marketing Manager to Director of Marketing. Jennifer has worked for Regnery for over two years and has proven to be an invaluable source for the company. In her role as Senior Marketing Manager, Jennifer was responsible for overseeing both marketing and publicity efforts for the Salem Books imprint of Regnery Publishing. She has been an active part of some of Salem Books’ biggest successes, including four national bestselling titles from Salem Books: Fault Lines by Voddie Baucham, Christianity and Wokeness by Owen Strachan, Is Atheism Dead? by Eric Metaxas, and The Babylon Bee Guide to Wokeness from the Babylon Bee.

“I am happy to announce Jennifer’s well-deserved promotion to Director of Marketing for Salem Books. When she joined our team in December 2019, she hit the ground running and established a much-needed overhaul of the marketing and publicity process. The results have been nothing less than spectacular. In 2021, four of the seventeen books we published became nationwide bestsellers due to Jennifer’s adroit marketing efforts and collaboration with the Salem Books team,” Publisher Tim Peterson says.

In addition to her role with Regnery, Jennifer has worked in the publishing industry for nearly five years and twenty-five in publicity and marketing. In her time with HarperCollins Christian Publishing, she drove the success for multiple titles in the Young Adult category with the Zonderkidz and Blink imprints.
