Jennifer Kasius

Executive Editor
#1 NYT-bestselling, former Editorial Director at Running Press (Hachette)

Over the course of her 25+ years in the publishing industry, Jennifer has acquired multiple New York Times bestsellers, including the #1 NYT bestsellers You Are a Badass (4 million copies sold) and Skinny Bitch.  As Editorial Director of Running Press (Hachette Book Group), she acquired in the areas of self-help, lifestyle, memoir, and pop-culture, working with HGTV/Trading Spaces interior designer Vern Yip, Real Housewives stars Lisa Vanderpump and Teresa Giudice, author of The Sneaky Chef Missy Chase Lapine, comic artist Liz Climo, James Beard Award-nominated chef Asha Gomez, and “Sober Curious” leader Ruby Warrington.

Prior to her 17 years at Running Press, Jennifer worked as an acquisitions editor at Crown/Three Rivers Press and Dutton/Plume (now all imprints of Penguin Random House). She loves working on books that delight and entertain—particularly offbeat, edgy voices with inspiring messages.
