The Biblical Archaeology Society is pleased to announce that Jonathan Laden has taken the position of Publisher.
Jonathan graduated from Stanford University and earned his MBA from the University of Washington. Before coming to the Biblical Archaeology Society (BAS), he gained experience with multiple small, entrepreneurial businesses, served on the board of a local nonprofit, and has published multiple magazines.
He joined the society 15 years ago to serve as Circulation Director, helping Biblical Archaeology Review reach as many readers as possible. For the past five years, Jonathan has been the Chief Financial Officer for BAS.
“The Biblical Archaeology Society doesn’t just have me, but also a long-term staff of a dozen, dedicated employees,” said Jonathan. “The experience that our staff bring to their roles helps assure the strength and stability of the society, and Biblical Archaeology Review magazine, even in the face of an ongoing challenging publishing and travel environment.”
Jonathan takes over as Publisher from Sue Laden, who served BAS and Biblical Archaeology Review for nearly five decades. Sue will continue in her role as BAS President and act as a special advisor on BAS projects and initiatives.
