LouisMcBride-web-closeBaker Publishing Group announced two new hires today.

Louis McBride has joined the Baker Academic and Brazos Press divisions as the new publicist. Baker Academic has also recently hired Christina Jasko as a textbook specialist.

McBride worked with the Baker Book House retail division for 15 years. For the past several years, his responsibilities included church relations; managing the store’s academic, Catholic and Bible sections; and writing for the BBH Church Connection blog. He holds a master's degree from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. International Christian Retail Show attendees will recognize McBride from his workshop sessions at the show.

Jasko served as an editorial associate for four years at Baker Academic and holds degrees from Wheaton College (B.A.) and University of Chicago Divinity School (M.A.). In this role, she will be responsible for the supplemental materials developed around Baker Academic’s major textbooks, including the Textbook eSources website.

“We are very pleased to have such knowledgeable and experienced additions to our team,” said Bryan Dyer, marketing director for Baker Academic and Brazos Press. “Louis brings over 15 years of Christian retail experience and a deep understanding of academic books. Christina’s editorial eye and theological mind will shape our growing interest in providing robust resources for our textbooks and enhancing the teaching and learning experience.”
