NEW YORK — In a realignment at Gruner + Jahr USA, Sharon Summer, group publisher of Parents and Child, has been named publisher of Rosie’s McCalls. She succeeds Madelyn Alpert Roberts, who will be leaving the company.
The post of group publisher won’t be filled. Summer will also become a corporate senior vice president and a member of the executive committee of G+ J. She continues to report to Dan Brewster, chairman and chief executive officer of G+J.
