Bounce! Sales & Marketing Ltd aims to expand the number of publishers it represents following the appointment of Catherine Stokes to the new post of sales and marketing director. The company will also begin to provide more bespoke marketing services to its clients.
Bounce! m.d. Robert Snuggs said: "Catherine's appointment means we can now embrace plans for growth." Stokes' role will include responsibility for Bounce!'s sales reps and supporting key accounts, as well as developing marketing support for smaller publishers represented by Bounce! that do not have their own marketing resources.
Bounce! currently represents 30 publishers, including Piccadilly Press, Book House, Templar and Tango.
Stokes was previously head of marketing and PR for Oxford Children's Books, a role she left in 2005. Since leaving, she has been running her own sales and marketing consultancy for publishers including Random House, Egmont and OUP.
