Faber makes changes to editorial team

Faber has made a number of changes in its non-fiction and crime fiction publishing teams.

Hannah Griffiths has been appointed publishing director, crime, alongside her existing paperback role and commissioning in fiction and non-fiction. She will be responsible for growing and developing the crime list. In addition to commissioning and editing literary fiction, senior commissioning editor Angus Cargill will head the crime editorial team. He will be assisted by project editor Katherine Armstrong, who will help him in finding new crime authors.

Neil Belton, senior editor for non-fiction, has been appointed editorial director for non-fiction and will also assume responsibility for developing the non-fiction list for Faber in Ireland. Elsewhere in non-fiction, Lee Brackstone, publishing director, fiction, will continue to lead the team in buying books for its rock and pop list.

Stephen Page, c.e.o. of Faber, said: "This new structure and new commissioning resource should create the platform to convert the excellent taste and range of writers on these lists into ever-increasing success. We are ambitious about the success we can achieve in our publishing as it has grown over the last decade, and more especially over the last three years. All these promotions are exceptionally well deserved."
