Random House is extending its digital team, and has promoted Dan Franklin, current digital editor [pictured] to the role of digital publisher, while multi-media editor Jon Salt steps into the role of head of digital product development.
The publisher is also recruiting for the new role of head of digital marketing to build closer direct relationships with consumers.
Franklin joined RH at the start of 2011 as digital editor following six years at Canongate. He will work with the group's publishing teams on continuing to develop direct-to-digital publishing as well as working with existing content for the digital marketplace. He will also take on responsibility for commissioning new projects and developing creative partnerships for the digital consumer.
Salt joined RH in 2009 as senior digital producer and was promoted to multi-media editor in 2010. As head of digital product development, he will take the lead on issues to do with technology and device insight, predicting the new digital products consumers want.
The three roles will report to digital marketing and new product development director Hannah Telfer, who said: "I'm delighted that in Jon and Dan we have the talent within our existing team to support this new structure . . . We are also opening up opportunities for fresh new talent to join this exciting team and that recruitment is under way."
