Bookmasters welcomes new vice president of sales

February 15, 2017

Shawn Metts has been named vice president of sales at Bookmasters, one of the largest providers of integrated book publishing services in the United States.

Mr. Metts joins Bookmasters following 12 years of sales and national account management for F+W Media, where he was most recently their vice president of book sales. During his tenure at F+W he led teams of in-house and field sales representatives, as well as several foreign sales relationships and initiatives. His experience includes the integration of multiple publishing lines as well as leading strategic product and category launches.

Mr. Metts began his career in book publishing with Joseph-Beth Booksellers, where he eventually became their general manager before moving onto F+W Media. He is a graduate of the University of Kentucky.

“We’re thrilled to have Shawn on our executive team,” said Ken Fultz, general manager at Bookmasters. “His experience and passion are a great fit to our culture and our strategic plan.”

Mr. Metts will step into the role being vacated by Deb Keets, who is retiring after 17 years of service to Bookmasters. He will be responsible for strengthening Bookmasters’ existing relationships with university press and academic publishers, building relationships with prospective publishers across all market segments, and specializing in the sales of Bookmasters’ book manufacturing offerings. Mr. Metts will also lead Bookmasters’ in-house services sales team.
