Restructure at BookData Publisher Services

Nielsen Book has reorganised its BookData Publisher Services team, making four new appointments but also three redundancies.

Clive Herbert is taking on the position as head of publisher services responsible for all publisher bibliographic and commercial relationships, reporting to BookData sales director Simon Skinner. Kirstie Wainwright and Lucy Huddlestone take on newly created publisher account manager roles, reporting to Herbert. Meanwhile Liz Pilgrim takes on the role of new sales and subscription manager.

Three jobs are to go at the end of July, with publishing and editorial services manager Peter Mathews, publisher subscriptions manager Vesna Nall, and publisher relations manager Edwin Pillans all leaving the business.

Nielsen Book said the reorganisation would "provide seamless services…to publishing clients."
