English term or phrase: New Directions Editor in Chief
Hello, could you please explain me what is this?

Context:

But as New Directions Editor in Chief Peter Glassgold points out, advances on royalties for most translated books remain in the $1,000-to-$5,000 range.

Thank you very much. I thought about: redactor jefe de nuevos mercados. But I am not sure about it. Best regards

disagree  irenemontero: No. En este caso no es posible decir que es un 'redactor', pues New Directions es una casa editorial. Por tanto, se trata del 'editor' (a secas) o 'editor jefe'.

  -> La función de Glassman es "editor" en inglés; en español, sería, o redactor jefe, o director. Pero no editor, que es "publisher" en inglés.
