HarperCollins taps Thomas Nelson VP to lead fiction group

Publishing group HarperCollins is continuing with its merger of Thomas Nelson and Michigan-based Christian publishing peer Zondervan. Execs have named Daisy Hutton, who joined Thomas Nelson in Nashville four years ago, to lead a united fiction group.

"We have the opportunity to take Christian fiction to a new level by supporting two strong publishing legacies while at the same time preparing to move into the new digital frontier," said David Moberg SVP & Group Publisher, Harper Collins Christian Publishing. "We intend to maintain separate teams for publishing, editorial and marketing for both Thomas Nelson and Zondervan where it makes sense strategically. However, I have no doubt that our fiction presence will only benefit from Daisy’s leadership."
