Rosalind Porter has been appointed publisher of Notting Hill Editions.
She will succeed Kim Kremer, who will continue to run the company founded by her father in 2011.
Porter began her career at Random House, where she worked as an editor, before moving to Granta in 2007. In 2013 she became editorial director for fiction at Oneworld Publications, returning to Granta as deputy editor in 2015. She will start her new role on 1st March 2021, reporting to Kremer.
Commenting on her appointment, she said: "My time at Granta could not have been more rewarding, or indeed more fun. I’ve been able to work with some of the most exciting writers around, and with a brilliant group of talented colleagues. I’m delighted now to be joining Notting Hill Editions, one of the most engaging and dynamic independent publishers in Britain. The word ‘essay’ may bring to mind laborious schoolwork for some, but as NHE has shown, there is nothing the form can’t do and I’m looking forward to reminding readers of how lively, how provocative and how entertaining it can be."
Kremer added: "This is an exciting step for NHE. The time is ripe to expand our team as we look to celebrate our 10th year. Ros Porter brings a wealth of experience to the role and will help build on the growing success of the company. Ros combines commercial awareness with an eye for spotting literary talent, and will be responsible for commissioning new titles and developing the NHE brand. We’re delighted to welcome her to the team."
