Marji Ross is the president of Regnery, a major conservative book publishing house and the devoted mother of three daughters.
As a child, Marjory (Marji) Grant Ross dreamed of being one of two things: either the editor of The Wall Street Journal or a Broadway singer. Today, she is the first person outside the Regnery family to ever hold the title of President of Regnery Publishing, initially joining the company as vice president and general manager in 1999. Prior to that, she was a senior group publisher for Phillips International, where she ran several business units, including investment newsletters, business newsletters, and health newsletters. She graduated from Dartmouth College with a BA in English in 1981, and earned her Masters in Journalism from American University.
Under her strong leadership at Regnery, in the past 12 years the company has placed 48 of its books on The New York Times Best-Seller List – an enviable feat in the competitive world of publishing.
Marji was blessed with a few strong female role models in her developmental years – one of them was her first boss, a woman entrepreneur who had started her own public relations firm. She received the Clare Boothe Luce Policy Institute’s Woman of the Year Award at CPAC in 2005.
