Rhea Halford leaves S&S

Simon & Schuster’s commissioning editor for sport, Rhea Halford, has left the company.

Halford took up her post with S&S in March 2011 and has signed titles such as memoirs by Welsh rugby captain Sam Warburton and Man United footballer Paul Scholes.

She has left to begin "a new adventure abroad", according to the publisher. S&S is currently recruiting for Halford’s replacement.

In the meantime Ian Marshall will be covering her role.
