BLOOMINGTON - The former president of Indianapolis-based tech company MOBI has landed a new role. Bloomington-based Author Solutions LLC has named Mitch Black chief executive officer.

The announcement comes less than a month after MOBI announced co-founder Josh Garrett would succeed Black as president. At the time, the company did not state a reason for Black's departure.

"Author Solutions is a pioneer and a true leader in the supported self-publishing industry, which has enabled authors to realize and commercialize their stories, ideas and dreams," said Black. "The market is expanding offering even greater opportunities for us to serve authors and our partners, so I am thrilled to take on this leadership role at this time."

Author Solutions provides self-publishing services for authors throughout the world.
