Natalie Jerome to leave Bonnier Books UK

Acquisitions Director and Publisher Natalie Jerome to leave her role after “an exhilarating two years.”

Natalie Jerome is to leave her role as Acquisitions Director and Publisher at Bonnier Books UK. Natalie joined the business in January 2017 as Brand and Licensing Director, before being promoted to Acquisitions Director and Publisher in November the same year.

“It’s been an exhilarating two years and I’ve loved the opportunity Bonnier Books UK have given me to spread my commissioning wings beyond my commercial Non-Fiction heartland and be part of the strategic evolution of the business … I’m especially proud of the success of Rochelle’s debut children’s picture book, which demonstrates the real commercial potential of publishing diversely.”

Perminder Mann, CEO, said: “I would like to thank Natalie for her hard work and contribution to the business over the last two years, which has included the acquisition and publication of bestsellers from Denise Fergus (the mother of James Bulger), Gary Barlow and Professor Steve Peters, the debut children’s books from Rochelle Humes and Ade Adepitan, as well as the setting up of our wellness and lifestyle imprint, Lagom. I am sorry to see Natalie go and wish her all the very best in her future career.”

Natalie Jerome added: “It’s been an exhilarating two years and I’ve loved the opportunity Bonnier Books UK have given me to spread my commissioning wings beyond my commercial Non-Fiction heartland and be part of the strategic evolution of the business. I’m especially proud of the recent success of Rochelle’s debut children’s picture book which, with 25k copies in print and sales of close to 10k copies in just over a month since publication, demonstrates the real commercial potential of publishing diversely. I have enjoyed my time here and I wish the team all the very best for the future.”
