Meet the New Members of the Vook Team

Vook is thrilled to welcome Peggy Garry as Legal Counsel and Tenesha Gleason as Senior Director of Business Development!

Over the last few months Peggy Garry has been a great help to us with our legal contracts and we are overjoyed that she will now be a full-time member of the company. Prior to joining Vook Peggy served as Senior Counsel for Disney where she was part of the team that started the Hyperion book division. She has also worked at Golden Books as a VP of Legal and Business Affairs, as well as at John Wiley & Sons where as a Legal Director she negotiated rights contracts and managed Wiley’s trademark portfolio. Most recently she was in private practice, counseling literary agents, book designers and authors. Additionally, Peggy has served as adjunct professor at New York University for 12 years, teaching First Amendment and Intellectual Property law. Her favorite reads are The complete works of Marcel Proust and CHRONICLES by Bob Dylan.

With a love for all things innovative, Tenesha Gleason most recently worked at focusing on Mechanical Turk. While working at Amazon she refined her strategic development expertise, working with several major corporations and countless tech trailblazers. Tenesha is originally from Salt Lake City, UT (cue stereotypes and typical bar jokes) but she now calls Brooklyn, NY her home. She has an unhealthy obsession with the written and spoken word and is usually reading ebooks or listening to podcasts. Speaking of obsessions, her love of technology, creation, distribution, consumption and monetization of digital media is one of the reasons she joined Vook. Prior to working at Amazon she worked at Audible as a Senior Partner of Content Acquisition. Between Audible and working at Tantor Media, she developed many friendships in the publishing industry. She is typically watching movies and/or reading books (doing both with Vooks) and secretly seeks out opportunities to show off for her 16 nieces and nephews.  Tenesha doesn’t eat pork or beef but loves hot dogs and filet mignon.
