Senior Vice President and Publisher, Fodor's Travel
A native of Houston, TX, D’Acierno has always been a traveler, growing up on airplanes with a father who worked as a pilot. A harrowing flight with her father at the controls of a small private plane whisking the family from the path of Hurricane Alicia didn’t stop D’Acierno from becoming a flight attendant for Continental Airlines following college. After touring the globe and sharing a Newark, NJ “crashpad” with other flight attendants, D’Acierno embarked on a career in publishing.
D’Acierno’s extensive publishing experience includes positions in publicity and marketing as well as event management.
In addition to Fodor’s, D’Acierno also leads Penguin Random House Audio, Living Language, Reference, and Large Print, imprints of Penguin Random House Digital Publishing Group.
