Jon Malinowski,President of the Combined Book Exhibit (CBE) and the mastermind behind PubMatch.

Jon’s passion for the publishing industry started early in life after an internship at CBE in the 1970’s when his father was at the helm of the company. After graduating from Bradley University, Jon officially joined CBE and rose through the ranks quickly to become head of the marketing department. In 1983, Jon took over as President of the company and under his leadership, CBE has facilitated thousands of publishers and other businesses related to the publishing industry at book fairs around the world. Jon now oversees 25 international and domestic events annually, and has successfully led groundbreaking U.S. publishing missions to China, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Cuba. He also was instrumental in establishing the Middle East Library Association in partnership with the American Library Association and the Sharjah International Book Fair. After many years at the helm of CBE, Jon perceived a growing need in the publishing industry for a global rights resource, and in 2008, founded PubMatch – the first online rights toolkit for publishers, agents and authors. Since its launch, Jon partnered with Publishers Weekly and the company has grown to over 14,000 authors, publishers and agents in over 150 countries.
