03.04.14 | Sarah Shaffi
Hachette India has appointed Poulomi Chatterjee as its new editorial director.
She will replace Nandita Aggarwal, who is leaving to pursue personal projects.
Chatterjee joined Hachette India in 2010, and previously worked at Macmillan and Penguin.
Since joining, Chatterjee has set up Hachette’s editorial and publishing systems and processes, and managed authors including business writer Subroto Bagchi, celebrity chef Ritu Dalmia, and literary award winners like Nayomi Munaweera and Uday Prakash.
She has just signed Rakesh Sharma, India’s first astronaut, for an inspirational memoir.
Thomas Abraham, m.d. of Hachette India, said: "I wish Nandita the very best with her new projects and I am delighted that we will at once have continuity in this crucial role in the company.
“Poulomi has passion for her books and a commitment to our authors, which combined with her great sense of the market make her an ideal editorial director and I'm looking forward to working with her to further expand and develop our lists.”
