Oct 11, 2021: American Reporter: Impacting the World through Books: Introducing Byron Williamson
In 1988 Worthy Publishing was sold to Word, Inc., a CapCities/ABC company, now part of The Walt Disney Company. Currently located in Las Colinas, Texas, Williamson moved into the leadership of Word, managing the growth of Word Books from $19 million to $72 million by fiscal 1999. First, he recruited a team that successfully published such authors as Billy Graham, Max Lucado, Charles R. Swindoll, Nolan Ryan, Os Guinness, Dr. James C. Dobson, Charles Colson, and the MacArthur Study Bible, as well as completing the Communicator’s Commentary series and the Word Biblical Commentaries series. Progressing further, in December 1992, Word was acquired by Thomas Nelson, located in Nashville, TN. Soon after that, Nelson was listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), and Williamson was named President of Thomas Nelson and Word. The new management team drove sales from $128 to $173 million by fiscal 1999. Then, step by step, he converted WordKids into Tommy Nelson children’s books and recruited Jack Countryman to launch J. Countryman gift books.
