    Jon Meacham

    Executive Editor/Executive Vice President, Random House

    Presidential historian, Contributing Editor at TIME, and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jon Meacham is executive vice president and executive editor of Random House Publishing Group.

    His book American Lion: Andrew Jackson in the White House, was a New York Times bestseller. Awarded the Pulitzer Prize for biography in 2009, the book was cited as an ?unlikely portrait of a not always admirable democrat, but a pivotal president, written with an agile prose that brings the Jackson saga to life.?
