Katy MacMillan-Scott, previously an account director at Four Colman Getty, has joined Riot Communications this week in the role of campaigns director.
MacMillan-Scott leaves Four Colman Getty after starting in 2007 and where she has worked across publicity, marketing and brand management for a wide range of literature and arts clients in the UK and overseas. Most notably, she has led on the PR for the Man Booker Prize for the past five years.
MacMillan-Scott also worked on PR for the International Prize for Arabic Fiction and the Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse Prize, helped launch Egmont Publishing's recent Winnie-the-Pooh sequel, The Best Bear in All the World, and James Bond novels by Jeffery Deaver and William Boyd, and publicised specialist imprints Everyman’s Library and Notting Hill Editions, among other arts projects, such as the reopening of the Charles Dickens Museum. She also runs literary film club, The Bluestocking Club, which was launched in April this year and takes place monthly at Waterstones Tottenham Court Road.
MacMillan-Scott said: "I'm thrilled to be joining Riot. I've long admired their work and sense of creativity and verve. It feels like a very exciting time to be joining the team and I look forward to contributing to their growing portfolio."
Anwen Hooson, co-managing director at Riot Communications, said: "The mastermind behind some of the most visible arts campaigns of recent years, Katy's work always demonstrates zeal and flair, that "extra something" we always strive to achieve for our clients. As such, Katy's appointment feels like a fantastic fit - we're truly excited to be welcoming her to Team Riot".
