Nina Nocciolino joined the Cave Henricks team in December 2017 after seven years publicizing books at Harvard Business Review Press.
She graduated magna cum laude with a BA in Journalism from Northeastern University, pivoting to publishing a few years post-graduation. After completing New York University’s well-known and well-regarded Summer Publishing Course, Nina went on to earn an MS in Publishing from New York University.
Nina has spent a decade in the publishing industry, working previously at Penguin’s Young Readers division, promoting many of her beloved childhood favorites—Spot, Peter Rabbit, The Little Engine That Could, and Mad Libs.
She joined Harvard Business Review Press in 2010, working with a number of prestigious authors and books, including John Mackey and Raj Sisodia, Conscious Capitalism; Joan C. Williams, White Working Class; Stewart D. Friedman, Leading the Life You Want; Heidi Grant, No One Understands You and What to Do About It; Herminia Ibarra, Act Like a Leader; Michael Watkins, The First 90 Days; and Vijay Govindarajan, The Three Box Solution, among many others. Nina has repeatedly landed top-tier national coverage for her authors in outlets such as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Economist, Financial Times, The Washington Post, Bloomberg, Fast Company, CBS This Morning, and NPR.
An author Nina once worked with said that to figure out what you should be doing with your career, you should give yourself the “newspaper test.” Or rather, when you pick up the Sunday paper, look to which section you pick up first. For her, it was the Book Review. “It’s always been about books for me.”.
