Formerly senior vice president of finance and operations for Worthy, Howell joined the company in 2009. Prior to Worthy, Howell served as senior vice president of finance and operations at Integrity Publishers under current Worthy President and CEO Byron Williamson, and as senior vice president of finance and operations for Word Entertainment.

Felt, who was sales director of Christian and trade accounts for Ideals and Guideposts, will oversee international accounts and children’s products for Worthy in the CBA market. A veteran with more than 20 years in the retail environment, Felt has been a buyer for notable department stores, conducting catalog/direct mail, online sales and business-to-business ventures, and has worked for a distributor for the warehouse clubs. She has been involved with the publishing industry in various capacities since 1990.

“David has been one of the integral individuals in the launch of Worthy Publishing, and with our incredible growth over the past few years, to see him promoted is a well-deserved honor from our board,” Williamson said. “We are also thrilled to have Debbie on board at Worthy. As a recent addition to our company with the Ideals acquisition from Guideposts, we are pleased to recognize Debbie and the vital role she has already fulfilled in our sales force.”
