Greg Britton named Publisher for J. Paul Getty Trust

LOS ANGELES, CA.- Michael Brand, director of the J. Paul Getty Museum, today announced that Greg Britton has been appointed Publisher for the J. Paul Getty Trust, effective February 4, 2008. Britton will oversee all publishing activities for the J. Paul Getty Museum, and also will work in concert with the Getty Research Institute and the Getty Conservation Institute on program publications.

Britton comes to the Getty from the Minnesota Historical Society Press & Borealis Books where he has served as Publisher since 1999. The society is the largest historical society in the country and the premier regional press in America.

“We are delighted that Greg will join the Getty as our new Publisher. In a relatively short period of time, Greg has transformed the Minnesota Historical Society Press into a dynamic, profitable and critically recognized leader, both regionally and nationally. His innovative approach and extraordinary insight has earned Greg a reputation of excellence and has made him popular with authors, editors and publishers alike. I am very pleased that someone of Greg's caliber has decided to join us,” said Dr. Michael Brand.

In his role as publisher, overseeing the direction of the J. Paul Getty Trust's publications program, Britton will lead a staff of 47 employees and have responsibility for 40-50 releases annually.

Getty Publications produces a wide variety of books in the fields of art, photography, archaeology, architecture, conservation, and the humanities for both general and specialized audiences. These award-winning publications complement the work of the J. Paul Getty Museum, the Getty Conservation Institute, and the Getty Research Institute. Publications include illustrated exhibition catalogues, illustrated works on single artists and art history, fun and educational books to interest children in art, works on cultural history, gift books, scholarly monographs, critical editions of translated works, and comprehensive studies of the Getty’s collections.

Prior to his tenure with the Minnesota Historical Society Press & Borealis Books, Britton was director of Madison House Publishers, a scholarly press then based in Madison, Wisconsin. He holds advanced degrees in American History from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, and an AB in History and minor in English from Wabash College in Crawfordsville, Indiana.

Britton is currently active in the American Association of University Presses and the Association of American Publishers.
