Penguin chief resigns

Anthony Forbes Watson has resigned as chief executive of leading publisher Penguin UK, reports The Book Standard. John Makinson, Penguin Group chairman and CEO, who has taken over the management of Penguin said that Forbes Watson left following "genuine differences of view on the way forward."

However, Forbes Watson's departure is being seen as linked to the recent troubles Penguin has had implementing a new distribution system.
