HarperCollins UK's special projects director Katie Fulford has decided to leave the firm after 25 years to "develop some exciting new projects".
She has worked in nearly every division, in positions including group rights director, m.d. of children’s, m.d. of Collins non-fiction and acting m.d. of William Collins and 4th Estate.
Most recently, as special projects director she has headed up film and television development at HarperCollins "as well as delivering a successful first year for The Literacy Project, which has seen the company support a range of activity through funding and volunteering in Stoke and areas in the North East of Glasgow," the publisher said.
Fulford will leave at the end of July and HarperCollins has said there is no news yet on a possible replacement.
She said: "25 years is a bit of a landmark and I felt if I did not leave HarperCollins now I never would. I have loved working with so many wonderful colleagues during my time here and it has been a privilege to have worked in so many roles. I am so grateful to the teams and people I have worked with including my bosses Eddie Bell, Vicky Barnsley and Charlie Redmayne. I will miss HarperCollins but I am very much looking forward to consulting on, and developing some exciting new projects."
HarperCollins c.e.o. Charlie Redmayne said: "Katie has been a star of this company for 25 years. She has excelled in everything she has done and has been a huge part of our success. I value her energy, intellect, experience and advice and I wish her well as she brings these many skills to her future projects."
