Oasis Audio October 22 announced the promotion of Steve Smith to publisher following the departure of Tammy Faxel. Smith, a publishing veteran with more than 25 years’ experience, had served as the vice president of sales and marketing since August 2010. In addition to editorial and marketing positions, he has authored eight juvenile fiction titles and contributed to several short story anthologies and art books.
Faxel vacated the publisher’s office after a five-year tenure for a new post in business development at Brilliance Audio. “While the Oasis team is sad to see Tammy go,” Smith said, “we are excited for her as she enters into this new chapter in her life. Because of the dedication and expertise of our entire staff, we anticipate a seamless transition, with no disruption to our customers,” he added.
