Hilary Strong has been named as c.e.o. of the Europe division of literary rights organisation International Literary Properties, adding to her existing role as UK c.e.o.
Strong will head the New York and London-based company for both areas of the business.
Strong, formerly c.e.o. of Agatha Christie Ltd, will have responsibility for the UK and European acquisition programme, with her remit to acquire the rights in literary estates from those who have inherited them, or from living authors seeking financial certainty from an experienced buyer, the organisation said. She will also have global responsibility for the company’s TV and film exploitation of estates acquired.
Launched in 2017, the business is led by Scott Hoffman as global c.e.o. and executive chairman Ted Green.
