On Friday 7th December, The Bookseller published its annual list of the most influential people in the British book trade.
Perminder Mann, CEO at Bonnier Books UK, was included on the list for the fourth consecutive year, noted for being named on the Guardian’s list of the UK’s most powerful BAME leaders and for being given a Wikipedia entry as part of the online encyclopedia’s drive to close its “gender page gap”.
In addition, the 2018 list included new-entry, Natalie Jerome. As Acquisitions Director and Publisher at Bonnier Books UK, Natalie is credited for signing singer and presenter Rochelle Humes’ new picture book, and for “[tapping] into the lifestyle trend to follow hygge with the launch of a wellness imprint called Lagom, which will publish 15 books a year across food, diet and fitness, mind, body and spirit, parenting, popular psychology and mindfulness.”
