Collins Stockpiling of Executive Editors Continues

When Collins hired Adam Bellowas an executive editor two weeks ago, one of my first, private reactions was that if the hiring of Nancy Miller had been announced on January 24, and that of Gillian Blake on February 27, Bellow’s arrival to the Collins executive editor squad had come two weeks early.

Apparently somebody there read my mind, because Collins just sent out a memo about Caroline Sutton becoming its fourth new executive editor for 2008. She’ll take over the “Lifestyle/Wellness” imprint on April 14; her track record as an executive editor at Ballantine includes books by Deborah Tannen, Nicholas Perricone, Dean Ornish, and Sylvia Boorstein. “Caroline has an extraordinary talent for acquiring and editing books that inform, improve, and generally change lives for the better,” Mary Ellen O’Neill, the imprint’s publisher, tells HarperCollins colleagues in her memo. “I’m looking forward to seeing her continue that publishing tradition here at Collins, both in the industry and among her new colleagues.”
