Orion Publishing Group has appointed Alanna Feldman, previously of Mary Anne Thompson Associates, to be its US scout.
Feldman, who starts working with Orion with immediate effect, recently left Mary Anne Thompson Associates to start her own agency, Alanna Feldman Scouting. Orion is her first book client.
Katie Espiner, managing director of the Orion Publishing Group, said: "I am absolutely delighted that Alanna has agreed to work with us. She has a keen eye for the absolute best projects, and an indefatigable enthusiasm for her job which is infectious. She's a great fit for Orion."
Feldman said: "I am so excited and honored to begin scouting for Orion in my new venture. I have long admired their impressive and wide-ranging list, and am looking forward to working with their incredible team."
