The New Hampshire-based Sophia Institute Press has named its current CEO, Charlie McKinney, as its new president.
McKinney, the publisher's chief operating officer since April 2011, helped restore the press' financial viability. He said he is "honored" to be entrusted with the task of "building and expanding one of America's great Catholic publishing houses."
"Through our various apostolates and programs ... we are seeking to build and inform a Catholic laity that is actively redeeming the culture amidst the aggressive modernity that confronts it," he said Nov. 12.
The press became the publishing division of New Hampshire's Thomas More College of Liberal Arts and of Atlanta's Holy Spirit College in 2011. It is independent of the colleges and of the Catholic Church, with an office and warehouse in Bedford, N.H.
