As of May 16th, Clint Kimberling became Penn Press’ new Director of Sales and Marketing, joining us with more than 15 years of university press experience. His career began at the University Press of Mississippi, where he worked in publicity and advertising—while earning an MBA from Ole Miss. And most recently he served as Director of Marketing and Sales at the University of Alabama Press. While at University Press of Mississippi, Kimberling worked with our Editor-inChief Walter Biggins, and is excited to be reunited with him.
Kimberling is also thrilled to have joined join the team at Penn, noting, “I’ve admired their list from afar for years and am honored to be working on the other side of it now.”
“I am looking forward to having Clint’s experience as a marketer for regional titles help us build up our own regional lists, in addition to leading our marketing and sales team as they cultivate deeper engagement with our scholarly lists and expanding journals program,” says Press Director Mary Francis.
Kimberling originally hails from Fort Worth, Texas, having moved to Mississippi where he graduated from Millsaps College and became a member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity. He remained in Mississippi for more than a decade and worked in Alabama for the past five years.
When he’s not promoting and selling academic books, Kimberling spends his time running, playing golf, and finding a pickup basketball game. He will be relocating to Philadelphia with his girlfriend, four cats, and an Australian Shepherd puppy. And while we can’t speak for the animals, Clint is very much looking forward to the move and this next phase in his professional and personal life. We welcome all of them to our city and campus!
