Consumer-book publishing giant Random House recently reshuffled its adult trade division in hopes of cutting costs in the midst of the struggling economy.

Gina Centrello is now president and publisher of the Random House Publishing Group, which will expand to include the Bantam Dell Publishing Group. The Group will continue to serve as the flagship, publishing a variety of fiction and nonfiction in hardcover and paperback.

The Knopf Publishing Group will be chaired by Sonny Mehta and will now include the Doubleday and Nan A. Talese imprints.

Jenny Frost has been positioned as president and publisher of The Crown Publishing Group. The division will include Broadway, Doubleday Business, Doubleday Religion and WaterBrook Multnomah.

"Through greater collaborative efforts among the publishing, marketing and sales departments, we can sharpen our priorities, market our books more effectively, and respond more quickly and directly to a constantly changing market place," says Markus Dohle, chairman and chief executive officer. "That, in turn, will strengthen our vital partnership with our customers."

Irwyn Applebaum and Steve Rubin have stepped down from their roles in the company as publishers of Bantam Dell and Doubleday, respectively.
