People in print: Changes at ABC, The Walrus and more
Bob White
Robert White, senior vice president of Canada for the Audit Bureau of Circulations since 1994, is no longer with the organizaton. Neal Lulofs, vice president of corporate communications for ABC, would not comment on the reasons for the departure, describing it as an “internal personnel matter.” ABC will hire to fill the position, Lulofs said.

The Walrus Foundation
has hired Mary Cranston as its first-ever director of development. Cranston spent seven years with the Sick Kids Foundation and has also worked on fundraising events for the Canadian Film Centre and The Easter Seal Society. 

Francesca Grosso, who specializes in health policy and health care communication, has joined The Walrus Foundation’s board of directors. 

 James Zammi
James Zammit, who was laid off as director of circulation by CLB Media last year, joined Woodbridge, Ont.-based QMP Media Ltd. as director of audience development in November.

 Finally, McClelland & Stewart will publish a new book by former Western Standard publisher Ezra Levant this spring. Shakedown: How Our Government Is Undermining Democracy in the Name of Human Rights is described as “part memoir, part investigative journalism” and builds on the fall-out from Levant’s decision to reprint the famous Danish cartoons of Mohammed in his magazine. The book is Levant’s fourth.
