Christian publishing veteran Dan Balow has been appointed vice president of business development and publisher of Barbour Publishing. Balow, who previously served as publisher of eChristian, will report to Executive Vice President George Kourkounakis.
Balow will be responsible for "generating new and sustainable revenue streams to achieve projected sales growth, acquisitions and product development for all book and media products, and instrumental in long-term publishing plans and strategy development, company officials said.
"His skill set aligns perfectly with Barbour's mission statement and his strong publishing background will provide the vision to grow both print and e-books," Kourkounakis said.
Balow joined Carol Stream, Ill.-based Oasis Audio in 2006 after 14 years with Tyndale House Publishers, where he held positions in marketing, sales and international rights and licensing. He resigned from Oasis in June 2010 and joined eChristian later that year.
