Foyles makes management moves

Foyles has strengthened its marketing team and made a series of changes to its bookshop staffing.

Lisa Bird, former manager at Foyles Royal Festival Hall, is now local marketing manager for the Foyles branches, while Emilie Farcy, previously supervisor at St Pancras, has been promoted to manager of Royal Festival Hall.

Gary Powell, formerly bookseller at the pop-up store in One New Change, is now manager of the St Pancras branch following the departure of Rachael Lloyd; additional support for the sales and marketing team is being provided by bookseller David Owen, who has taken on the role of administrator for The Gallery at Foyles Charing Cross Road.

Meanwhile children’s bookseller Neil Jackson has become part-time children's marketing and events coordinator at the Charing Cross Road store.

This week Rebecca Hart, manager of Foyles at Westfield Stratford City, and Rebecca Cameron, manager of Foyles Westfield London were both nominated for Manager of the year at The Bookseller Industry Awards 2012.
