Cornerstone's Jack Fogg is joining HarperCollins in the newly-created role of publishing director for fiction and non-fiction.
Fogg is currently editorial director at Cornerstone imprint Century, where he has worked with authors including Rod Stewart, James Corden, Tim Vine and Hugh Howey.
He will begin at HarperCollins in March, reporting in to executive publisher Kate Elton.
She said: "He’s one of those rare publishers who are capable of combining the commercial with the cerebral, and he brings infectious enthusiasm and clever strategic thinking to everything he does. I was gutted to be the underbidder to him for Hugh Howey and again, more recently, Ben Winters’ Underground Airlines, so I’m hugely excited to see what he’ll bring to both the Fiction and NonFiction teams.”
Fogg added: "I’m very sad to be leaving Cornerstone after five happy years. I’ve worked with brilliant colleagues and had the great fortune to publish some wonderful books. The opportunity to take on this role at HarperCollins was just too good to pass up. I started my career at Harper, so it’s great to be going back, especially to a list with such an array of talented people, authors and familiar faces."
