Lingwood up at Ebury
01.06.12 | Charlotte Williams
Ebury Publishing has appointed publisher Jake Lingwood to the additional role of deputy managing director, reporting directly to managing director Fiona MacIntyre.
Lingwood will have responsibility to help deliver Ebury's promise of being "creative, agile and consumer-aware with a commitment to profitable, innovative publishing".
Lingwood joined Ebury Press as editorial director in 1997, moving into the role of publishing director in 2002, and setting up a joint venture with Time Out for their travel guide publishing in 2004. Following Random House's acquisition of BBC Books in 2006, Lingwood took responsibility for the new imprint and became publisher of the Ebury Publishing Division.
MacIntyre said: "It has been a great pleasure working with Jake over many years and this move is a natural extension of his existing role, allowing him to contribute even more fully to the development of Ebury in these exciting times."
