Sangster and Gilmour depart Head of Zeus

Two more staffers have been made redundant at independent Head of Zeus, where staff were warned of job cutbacks last December.

Communications director Suzanne Sangster departs the company this week, while Lucy Gilmour, editorial director at digital imprint Aria, has already left.

Gilmour's departure follows that of both Aria publisher Caroline Ridding and fellow Aria editorial director Sarah Ritherdon. Ridding and Ritherdon have since joined Amanda Ridout's new venture Boldwood Books.

Confirming the latest departures, Head of Zeus publisher Nicolas Cheetham said he was looking forward to making an announcement about the company's future publicity plans, and other matters, "soon". Cheetham has previously said that, despite personnel departures, the Aria imprint will continue to “flourish”.
