ROBERT McCULLOUGH TO JOIN RANDOM HOUSE OF CANADA LIMITED AS PUBLISHER

TORONTO, June 6, 2011 /CNW/ - It is my pleasure to announce that ROBERT McCULLOUGH will be joining Random House of Canada Limited as Publisher of a newly created imprint. Robert comes to us from Vancouver-based Whitecap Books, where he has worked for over 21 years, and has been their Publisher since 2001. This as-yet-unnamed publishing line will function as an independent imprint at Random House of Canada, focusing on the type of lifestyle and food titles for Canada and the North American marketplace that Robert has published with great success in the past.

Robert's first day with us will be July 11, 2011, and he will report directly to me.

This new imprint will have the full benefit of all of Random House of Canada's shared services, including marketing, sales, production and design, and publishing services departments. Colleagues from these departments will be working with Robert through a Publishing Board on the development of the list. Over the next few years this program will grow to publish 15-20 titles a year.

Robert will continue to be located in Vancouver. A West Coast-based imprint will be a valuable addition to our overall publishing mix, and Robert's relationships with some of the great gastronomic talent there will significantly add to our national publishing profile.

At Whitecap, Robert has published some of Canada's best-known culinary figures, from Michael Smith, Bob Blumer and Anna Olson, to new personalities on the food scene like Bal Arneson and Roger Mooking. He has also worked with international cooking superstars including Donna Hay, Gordon Ramsay, Curtis Stone and Tessa Kiros. During Robert's tenure as Publisher, Whitecap has garnered awards from Cuisine Canada and the World Gourmand Cookbook Awards.

I look forward to providing you with further information about this new development for our business in the coming months. I have admired Robert's publishing acumen and success at Whitecap, and I look forward to working with him as a member of our team.

Please join me in welcoming Robert to Random House of Canada.
