Faber creates new marketing roles

Faber has created two new roles in its marketing team following the departure of consumer marketing director Matt Haslum last month.

Current sales director Charlotte Robertson will take on the new role of sales and marketing director, and Katie Hall, currently head of campaigns, has been promoted to the role of head of marketing, reporting to Robertson. The marketing team will report to Hall with immediate effect.

Haslum's role as consumer marketing director has not been replaced.

Faber chief executive Stephen Page said: "We're fortunate to have someone with Charlotte's great experience of the sales and marketing role, which she held for five years at Simon & Schuster. Modern marketing requires a range of skills including a close relationship to both consumers and the book trade, and we have demonstrated great strength in both disciplines recently. I know that Charlotte will only build on this strength in the future so that we can deliver on our great ambition for our writers and the company."

Robertson said: "Katie Hall has devised some of our most adventurous, creative and successful campaigns for Faber over the last few years. It's fantastic to be able to promote her and put our consumer and trade marketing in such exciting and talented hands."
