HarperCollins has promoted James Lewis to senior communications officer, taking over responsibility for the publisher's corporate social responsibility strategy.
Lewis first joined HarperCollins in October 2011 as communications assistant, before becoming communications officer in October 2013. In his new role, he will work with new and existing charity partners and environmental organisations, to inform HarperCollins' green and charitable programmes. Recent initiatives include helping launch Beanstalk's children's literacy charter, and holding an executive job swap to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Communications director Susanna Frayn said: "This is a very well deserved promotion for James, who has become a much valued member of the team over the last three years. James has a natural affinity for the charity and environmental work we’ve been doing, and I’m sure he will bring both energy and commitment to his expanded remit."
Lewis said: "We have incredibly talented and passionate people here at HCUK, and the opportunity to utilise both our talent and content for corporate social responsibility purposes is a very exciting one."
