Cornerstone has appointed Selina Walker, currently publishing director of Transworld's crime and thriller list, to the role of publisher for Century and Arrow.
Walker will begin her role in mid-July, following 11 years at Transworld where she worked with authors including Tess Gerritsen and Simon Sebag Montefiore.
At Century and Arrow, she steps into Kate Elton's shoes, who is moving to HarperCollins.
Cornerstone m.d. Susan Sandon said: "I've long admired Selina's publishing: she has a wonderful eye for talent and a track record which is second to none. I know that she will add lustre to Century and Arrow."
Walker added: “I’m thrilled to be given the hugely exciting opportunity to run imprints that span commercial fiction and non-fiction whilst being able to benefit from staying within The Random House Group.”
As a result of Walker's promotion, Sarah Adams, currently editorial director Transworld crime and thrillers, will become publishing director, with Cat Cobain promoted to publishing director of the women's fiction list.
Sarah Emsley, currently non-fiction editor working with popular culture titles, will be promoted to senior editorial director.
