Sue Fleming Retiring from Simon & Schuster

Sue Fleming, v-p and executive director of corporate marketing at Simon & Schuster, is retiring this summer. August 15 will be her last day with the company.

Sue Fleming

Fleming joined S&S in 1980 while still in college. She was an assistant to the ad/promo director before becoming part of the original Summit Books. After a stint away from S&S, she rejoined the company in 1991 as director of publicity for Fireside Touchstone Books. After that she became v-p, marketing director for the Adult Division, and eventually joined S&S's digital team. She assumed her current role in 2018.

"Throughout that time," wrote Adam Rothberg, senior v-p, corporate communications, "and regardless of role or title, she has been at the forefront of many initiatives that have formed the backbone of our digital marketing, and spearheaded projects that put us squarely on the cutting edge, showcasing our ability to use digital technology and methods to highlight our content and reach new audiences."

He continued: "If you have a complex, multi-faceted project that involves cross-disciplinary teams and an extremely long list of tasks to be tracked and completed on the path to launch and beyond, then Sue is the exact right person for the job. She has a deep understanding of the many systems that undergird our digital presence, their intricacies and how they are interrelated, and is able to marry that understanding and know-how to the consumer-facing marketing that helps to sell our books to readers. Anyone who has worked with her knows she's a consummate teammate, quick to raise her hand to help, and willing to roll up her sleeves and make a contribution, no matter the scale or challenging nature of the project. In short, she gets things done."
