Nigel Newton was born on 16 June 1955 in San Francisco, California. He was born into a "wealthy family", with an American mother and an English father. His father, Peter Newton, was a Napa Valley winemaker, the founder of Sterling Vineyards and Newton Vineyard.
Newton conceived the idea of Bloomsbury in 1984 and the name of the company shortly thereafter; he first approached David Reynolds to join him in 1985 and later they brought on board Liz Calder and Alan Wherry. The four of them launched the company together in 1986.
