Quadrille makes new appointments

Quadrille has made a series of promotions and appointments within its sales teams, with Melanie Gray stepping up to become UK sales director, joining the board at the independent publisher.

The moves follow Faber's launch of indie sales force Faber Factory Plus, with Quadrille sales director Ian West leaving the company to join the new project in October as sales director.

Gray was formerly international rights director. Alex Elliott has been promoted to deputy head of UK sales and head of stationery sales, with Margaux Durigon promoted to head of international sales. Agata Sarnowska has joined the company as international sales executive, having previously worked as a rights manager at Macmillan Children's Books, and at Carlton Books as a foreign rights executive.
