JNEWS: Patterson, James [MC1969] makes the London Times and its insightful

http://entertainment.timesonline.co.uk/tol/arts_and_entertainment/books/article3341748.ece

From The Sunday Times
February 10, 2008
Profile: James Patterson

The man who uses factory methods to turn out novels is now the most borrowed author in British libraries

***Begin Quote***

One of James Patterson’s biggest regrets is that critics accord so little respect to his blockbuster thrillers, often dismissed as the literary equivalent of cornflakes. But there are sops to his self-esteem. One is that the American writer has become Britain’s most borrowed author, whose books were taken out of libraries 1.5m times in the past year.

***and***

Armed with English degrees from Manhattan College and Vanderbilt University, Patterson yearned to write fiction but settled for copywriting. He joined JWT in New York and began dating Jane, “the nicest person in the history of mankind. Every evening I just wanted to be with her”.

One morning after they had been together for five years, the couple went for breakfast and stopped off at the post office, where Jane dropped to the floor. “She had a brain tumour and had a limited amount of time to live. Those 2˝ years were the most special of my life. The perspective we took was that we were lucky to have each day together. I was passionately in love with a bald woman with tufts of hair.”

For a couple of years after Jane’s death, Patterson “worked my brains out and zoomed up the ladder”. But he was lonely and in desperation went to a dating agency, only to be thrown out “because I thought the questionnaire seemed slick and silly”.

DATELINE: NEW YORK Feb. 7

NEW YORK, Feb. 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — The Dreyfus Corporation announced today that Jon Baum, vice chair of distribution, will be named chief executive officer. J. Charles Cardona, vice chair, will be named president. Tom Eggers, who held titles of both chief executive officer and president, has elected to retire. All changes will be effective March 31, 2008.

“Growing U.S. intermediary business through Dreyfus is one of BNY Mellon Asset Management’s most important strategic objectives,” said Jon Little, chairman of The Dreyfus Corporation, vice chair of BNY Mellon Asset Management and a member of the Bank of New York Mellon Executive Committee. “Jon Baum’s distribution expertise, industry reputation and proven sales leadership have revitalized Dreyfus’ distribution activities, allowing the firm to better intensify its focus on intermediary clients. Jon will continue Dreyfus’ evolution as a first-class distribution firm.”

“We would like to take this opportunity to thank Tom Eggers for his outstanding leadership of the firm,” Little continued. “Under Tom’s successful stewardship, Dreyfus achieved record assets under management, and record inflows during tumultuous markets. Tom has groomed his successors, both of whom will report to me, to continue this outstanding momentum.”

Jon Baum joined Dreyfus in 2006 as the company’s Vice Chair of Distribution, overseeing distribution to intermediaries of all financial products, relationship management with intermediary partners, field management, retirement and separate account specialists and internal wholesalers.

Cardona is a graduate of Manhattan College with a bachelor’s degree in business administration. Dreyfus’ record assets under management of more than $260 billion, include record inflows into cash management and money market funds of more than $75 billion last year.

“Combined with Dreyfus’ historical investment expertise in money market and cash management funds, it is no surprise that Dreyfus has consistently achieved top industry rankings with Charlie at the helm of this business,” Little concluded.
