Dame Gail Rebuck, Baroness Gould, DBE (born 10 February 1952) is a British publisher, chairman and chief executive of global book publisher Random House's British operations. She was married to Philip Gould, Lord Gould of Brookwood until his death in November 2011.
Rebuck's Latvian-born grandfather, and her own father, were both in the rag trade. At age four she was sent to the South Kensington Lycée Français Charles de Gaulle, learning there to read and write in French before she did in English. She graduated with a degree in intellectual history from Sussex University in 1974.
After working for various small publishers, and running a paperback imprint for Hamlyn, she put funds of her own into a new imprint, Century. After a merger with Hutchinson in 1985, Century Hutchinson was taken over by Random House UK in 1989. Rebuck was appointed Chair and Chief Executive of Random House UK in 1991.
