Bruce Nichols Moves to Houghton Mifflin Harcourt

hmcologo.jpgMonths after HarperCollins shuttered his Collins division, Bruce Nichols is leaving the company to serve as adult trade and reference publisher at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.

At Collins, Nichols worked on “Alex & Me” by Irene Pepperberg, “My Booky Wook” by Russell Brand, and “Red and Me” by Bill Russell. Before the HarperCollins restructuring, he was the Collins publisher–moving there after serving as executive editor at Free Press.

Here’s more from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt president, Gary Gentel: “Nichols is widely recognized in the industry for his leadership, innovation and keen editorial judgment, and his ability to find topics and writers that attract national attention … We want to build on our legacy, but also look to the future, and I’m thrilled to have Bruce guide our Adult and Reference programs.”
