McIntyre joins Figure 1 Publishing

Scott McIntyre, founder and former CEO of Douglas & McIntyre, has joined Figure 1 Publishing. Figure 1 was formed in February by three D&M executives after the Canadian independent filed for bankruptcy. At Figure 1, McIntyre will work on business strategy and business development, as well as title acquisition.

“This is a huge boon for us,” said Chris Labonté, publisher of Figure 1 and one of the three Figure 1 cofounders. “Scott has a brilliant brain for publishing.” Figure 1 publishes illustrated books—art & architecture, food & wine, lifestyle, illustrated history, children’s—as well as business books and corporate history. It will launch its inaugural list of nine titles this fall.
