Geras new Arrow publishing director
16.10.12 | Charlotte Williams
Cornerstone has appointed Jenny Geras as publishing director of Arrow, with Geras moving from Pan Macmillan after six years.
Geras joined Pan Macmillan in 2006, working as online marketing manager and then head of online marketing until 2008. She joined the fiction editorial team as senior commissioning editor in October 2008 and was promoted to editorial director in September 2011. Among the titles she has published is this year's Tell the Wolves I'm Home by Carol Rifka Brunt, which was the subject of a five-way auction on acquisition. Before Pan Macmillan, Geras previously worked at Routledge and Penguin.
Century and Arrow publisher Selina Walker said: "I am pleased and excited that Jenny is joining us to become publishing director of Arrow. She and I share the same taste in fiction, and I have long been impressed with the list of women's fiction authors she's been building at Macmillan. Her background in online marketing will also be integral as we transition to the digital future. Jenny will be a real asset to the Cornerstone team, and I very much look forward to working with her in the years ahead."
Geras added: "I have loved my six years at Pan Macmillan and will miss all of my authors and colleagues, but I'm thrilled to be joining Cornerstone at such an exciting time. Arrow is one of the very best commercial imprints in the industry and I look forward to working with the team and its hugely talented authors, and to helping shape the future of the list."
