Nigel Newton

Founder and chief executive Bloomsbury

Nigel Newton is the founder and chief executive of Bloomsbury publishing, the house credited with publishing highly acclaimed authors such as Margaret Atwood, David Guterson and Khaled Hosseini. Newton was influential in signing the then-unknown author J K Rowling, after his eight-year-old daughter read a chapter and demanded more. The signing of Rowling boosted Bloomsbury’s placement on the international stage with the company selling over 100 million books across the world. Post-Potter and under Newton’s leadership, Bloomsbury has branched out to academic publishing, adding various acquisitions to its impressive portfolio. With establishments in the US, Australia and India, Bloomsbury now has a base in the three major book markets in the world.
