Jenny Savill has been appointed to Andrew Nurnberg Associates' board of directors.
Savill joined the agency, ANA Ltd, in 2002 as PA to the managing director, following a stint in theatre. She progressed to the role of assistant agent to Andrew Nurnberg, then an agent in her own right, building from scratch a list of children’s authors, which ANA described as "thriving".
In recent years, she has expanded her list to authors writing for adults, many of whom it's said have won awards and garnered international success or bestseller status.
Savill is praised by ANA for "her perceptive eye" and "warm and approachable nature", and is also often a speaker at literary festivals and to students of creative writing.
Following her appointment, she will continue to grow the English language side of the business.
