CEO Wendy Rosen Extends Her Leave

On Monday, Sept. 10, 2012, Wendy Rosen, our CEO and publisher, halted her campaign for U.S. Congress. Acknowledging the disappointment of her many supporters, friends and colleagues, Rosen issued an apology and thanked them for remaining committed to the mission of improving job opportunities for artists. She will continue to be on leave from managing The Rosen Group while she addresses matters associated with closing out her campaign. Additionally, Rosen is working on developing new projects to benefit entry-level artists, including a third edition of her book, “Crafting as a Business.” As always, she is available to consult privately with artists about their businesses. Because the campaign and the company operated separately, most of Rosen’s day-to-day duties with The Rosen Group were delegated to the company’s capable managers and staff. Any questions pertaining to the upcoming Buyers Market wholesale trade show should be addressed to Rebecca Mercado, show director, at Questions regarding the magazines should be addressed to Hope Daniels, editor-in-chief of NICHE and AmericanStyle and corporate vice president, at Other inquiries regarding The Rosen Group should be directed to Jean Thompson, director of public relations, at or 800-432-7238, ext. 218.
