Sabrina McCarthy has been appointed president of Bloomsbury US. She will also join Bloomsbury's global executive committee, reporting to CEO Nigel Newton. McCarthy will step into both roles at the beginning of April.
McCarthy joins Bloomsbury from Ingram Publisher Services, where she is v-p and general manager. Over her eight-year tenure at Ingram, she has overseen six distribution brands as well as the domestic and international print and digital sales teams and business operations team.
Prior to Ingram, McCarthy worked for 19 years at Perseus Books Group, where she held positions in publicity, sales, marketing, and business development before taking the helm of the company's client services business beginning in 2006. McCarthy left the company when it was sold in 2016.
"I am thrilled to now be at the helm of Bloomsbury US, a publisher I have admired since my very first visit to their London offices in 2002," said McCarthy in a statement. "A publisher who has a gift for finding incredible authors, while also helping to move the world forward through important academic and trade books. Nigel Newton is a publishing legend, and I am honored to be joining his leadership team. I look forward to working with the hugely talented Bloomsbury US team to bring great books to life, to lead our US ambitions and to continue to grow Bloomsbury US."
Former Bloomsbury USA president Adrienne Vaughan died tragically in August 2023, after a fatal boating accident during a vacation in Italy. No interim president was named following her death.
