Topping becomes m.d. at Greene & Heaton

Literary agency Greene & Heaton has made some structural changes at the agency, with Carol Heaton becoming chair of the company.

Antony Topping succeeds Heaton as managing director, with Nicola Barr joining the board of directors. Barr joins Topping, Heaton, Judith Murray and Charles Elliott on the board.

Heaton said: "I am delighted by our new structure. Antony has built up a splendid list while demonstrating real leadership qualities. He and Judith were my first colleagues when I took over the agency more than 15 years ago, and in that time both have amply proved their worth. I am also very happy that Nicola will be joining what is already a strong board."

The agency is this year celebrating 50 years since its founding by the late Elaine Greene.
