SAGE's corporate comms and public affairs manager Katie Baker is departing the publisher after seven years for a new post with Springer Nature.
Baker will be head of communications for publishing and research services at Springer Nature as of 1st April, reporting to Susie Winter, director of communications and engagement for research at the publisher. Baker's replacement at SAGE will be internal hire Louise Coady.
Baker said: “I’ve had a fantastic seven years at SAGE Publishing, a company with whom I have built my career in communications and had the opportunity to develop a strong communications programme with a team whom I ardently admire. The time, however, has come for new challenges and I am delighted to be moving over to Springer Nature and to be working under the direction of Susie Winter. I feel very energised by the new opportunities that both the team and the new role will offer me.”
From April, Baker will be contactable at firstname.lastname@example.org.
