Managing Director Edward Renehan founded New Street Communications in the spring of 2010 to publish his own books and those of others. Over the course of a 37-year career Renehan has done editorial development and marketing for such organizations as Random House, Harper Collins, Springer-Verlag, Osborne/McGraw Hill and Simon & Schuster. His consulting clients have included Book of the Month Club, Facts-on-File, Chelsea House, and the publications division of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, and he has lectured at NYU's Stern School of Business and other colleges and universities. Renehan has written for The Wall Street Journal, The San Francisco Chronicle and Hearst's Veranda, and is the author of more than 20 books (plus ghostwriter on still more) published by such imprints as Oxford University Press, Crown, Doubleday, and Basic/Perseus. After holding positions at such firms as St. Martin's Press and Wiley, Renehan served seven years as Director of Computer Publishing Programs for the Book Clubs Division of Macmillan (later renamed Newbridge Book Clubs, a Division of K-III Holdings/PriMedia). He sometimes publishes commentary here, and he has appeared frequently on C-SPAN's BookTV. With Stewart Brand and others, he is a founding/charter member of The Long Now Foundation.
