Lisa Campbell has been made news editor of The Bookseller, reporting to Benedicte Page, deputy editor.
Campbell joined The Bookseller in 2011 as retail reporter, and was made senior reporter in 2013, and deputy news editor in 2014. She has also news edited the London and Frankfurt Dailies since 2014. She has been acting news editor for the past six months.
Philip Jones, editor of The Bookseller, said: “Over the past five years Lisa has shown herself to be a strong news reporter with exceptional contacts across the industry, and in particular within retail, but also someone who can lead her team as it cements The Bookseller’s reputation as the premier resource for book trade news online and offline. I’m delighted she will now be The Bookseller’s news editor succeeding Benedicte.”
