Mark Hendle, m.d at Andersen Press, said: “In her short time here Liz White has proven herself to be an adept, experienced rights professional who has significantly grown sales in her territories. I am delighted Liz has agreed to the lead our rights team and together with Sarah Vanden-Abeele I look forward to seeing Andersen’s books continue to sell fantastically well around the world.”
