Andy Coles is to leave Little, Brown after 30 years with the publisher.
Coles, who works in the sales team at the Hachette-owned company, will officially leave the publisher on 30th April, but his leaving party was held last night (31st March).
Robert Manser, group sales director for Little, Brown and Orion, said Coles’ leaving was “bittersweet”.
“He has been a brilliant salesperson – competitive, analytical and incredibly hard working, and we are sorry that he has decided to retire after 30 years of amazing service to Little, Brown,” said Manser. “However Andy has had a long held desire to move further into the West Country and has now moved to a beautiful village in Cornwall.”
