My imprint at Hachette, Twelve, just named its new publisher: Susan Lehman from the NYU Brennan Cnter. Julie Bosman did a cover piece in The New York Times on the announcement.
Here is the note from Jamie Raab, VP at Hachette.
I am delighted to announce that Susan Lehman will be joining us as Publisher/Editor in Chief of
Over the summer, I thought long and hard about how to fill this role. It became clear to me that the unique vision for Twelve demanded that whomever took over as Publisher needed not only to have a driving passion for books and writers, but a very fresh and invigorating approach to our business. When I met Susan, I knew Iâ€™d found just the right person to uphold the imprintâ€™s tradition of high editorial standards and focused and aggressive advocacy for each book published. I also loved the fact that she comes to the job with a background that speaks to her curiosity and multi-dimensional talent. She is a breath of fresh air and I feel confident that as you get to know her, you, too, will be impressed by her taste and her commitment. Twelveâ€™s associate publisher Cary Goldstein shares my excitement about Susanâ€™s appointment, and with Cary and Susan leading the charge, I feel confident that Twelve will continue to be one of our industryâ€™s most dynamic imprints.
I have attached a press release with more details.
For those of you who know Susan, I hope you will give her a warm welcome back into book publishing. For those who have not yet had the pleasure of meeting her, youâ€™re in for a treat. Susanâ€™s first day on the job will be September 27th. Once she settles in, she will be reaching out to you and I know she is looking forward to building on the listâ€™s remarkable record of success.
Executive Vice President and Publisher
