Ex-RH CEO Alberto Vitale Sill Has a Lot to Say About Publishing

Posted at 6:50AM Thursday 28 Jun 2012

Alberto Vitale remains one of the most recognizable figures in the history of American publishing industry, largely thanks to his leadership over Random House from 1989 until 2002, a period that saw the company become an increasingly dominant commercial powerhouse. Nearly 80 years old, his voice remains confident and his memory sharp. Of Italian origin, Mr. Vitale is a powerful and passionate thinker, clearly used to being in charge.
