Scribe publicist Adam Howard has been promoted to publicity and marketing manager following a “stellar” two-and-a-half years with the indie.
Since joining the publisher in 2016, Howard (pictured) has run campaigns for The Mere Wife by Maria Davhana Headley, At Dusk by Hwang Sok-yong, and new picture book Plastic: past, present and future by Eun-ji Kim.
Before Scribe, Howard worked for nearly eight years at Foyles, where he managed events at the flagship Charing Cross store and handled bookselling for the Royal Festival Hall events programme.
Scribe’s UK m.d. Sarah Braybrooke said: “Adam has achieved wonderful things since he joined us two and a half years ago, and it is now genuinely impossible to imagine the Scribe UK office without his publicity know-how, events expertise and thoughtful, sensitive approach to working with authors and the media.”
The team is also expanding with the appointment of publicity and marketing assistant Aoife Datta (right), who returns after a year at Pavilion.
Braybrooke explained: “Aoife moved to London to take up a paid internship with us last year, having previously worked at Penguin Books Ireland. She was preternaturally accomplished from the start and we loved working with her. We are delighted to have now been able to offer her a permanent role and very pleased that she agreed to come back.”
