The Collins division of HarperCollins had gone almost two weeks without announcing a new hire. That ended this morning when they sent out a press release about Caroline Sutton, whom they’ve recruited from Ballantine and installed as executive editor within their health/wellness operation.
Ms. Sutton is the fourth executive editor Collins has hired since January. (The last one was the conservative Adam Bellow.) HarperCollins is growing the Collins division really, really aggressively, and allowing Steve Ross, who was installed as president last summer with the mandate to revive the Collins brand, to spend all kinds of money on assembling a formidable team.
Ms. Sutton starts at Collins on April 14th.
