Lisa Gallagher Hired as Agent at Sanford. J. Greenburger Associates

img_index1.jpgFormer William Morrow publisher Lisa Gallagher has joined Sanford. J. Greenburger Associates as a literary agent, months after the publisher lost her job in a massive restructuring at HarperCollins.

In 2000, Gallagher moved from London to help found the U.S. offices of Bloomsbury Publishing. Founded in 1932, the SJGA agency represents a number of authors, including Dan Brown, Nelson DeMille, and Robin Preiss Glasser.

Here’s more from Heidi Lange, vice-president of the agency: “Gallagher is that rare publishing professional whose talents include a strong editorial insight, marketing expertise, and keen business sense. She has a reputation for being extremely pro-author, working closly with writers on all aspects of a book’s publication, and yet she never loses sight of the realities of the marketplace.”
