Abingdon Press Welcomes New Sales Manager

(Nashville, TN) – Abingdon Press has announced the hiring of Jonathan Tuseth as the new Sales Manager of Key Accounts effective January 17, 2017. In the role, he will serve as the primary contact for the publisher’s CBA National Accounts, Noble Marketing, and their Canadian partner—Parasource Marketing & Distribution, among others.

Tuseth comes to Abingdon Press with 15 years of sales experience, most recently as Director of International Sales at Bookazine. He previously served ten years in international sales at Ingram Content Group. 

“Jonathan brings a wealth of experience to the role. His sales leadership and relationship-building skills will be a great fit for the Abingdon Press trade team and our customers.” noted Russ Sellars, Director of Trade Sales at Abingdon Press. “I believe that his previous experience with complex markets will transfer well as he works to strengthen the relationships and revenues of our key accounts.”

“I have previously focused primarily on the international markets in the Asia Pacific region. I’m excited to transition and work for a leading Christian publisher to aid on both domestic and international outreach,” shared Tuseth.
