Two new hires at Vintage

Vintage has appointed two new members of staff, recruiting Victoria Murray-Browne as editor at Vintage Books, and Kate Watson as press officer at Vintage Publishing.

Murray-Browne has moved into the former role of Frances MacMillan, now editor at Vintage Classics. Murray-Browne was previously an editor at John Murray, and also worked at Vintage Editorial on a short-term maternity contract. She will report into Vintage Publishing deputy publisher Rachel Cugnoni and work alongside the Vintage Editorial team.

Cugnoni said: "Victoria has a good eye for a great book and made a big impression on us all when she was last here so I am delighted to have tempted her back to Vintage."

Meanwhile, Watson joins Vintage from Dorling Kindersley, where she was acting press officer. She will report to Vintage publicity director Lisa Gooding, and will be responsible for campaigns across Jonathan Cape, The Bodley Head and Vintage Books.

Gooding added: "We're delighted that Kate is joining the Vintage Publicity team, bringing a wealth of publicity experience from the brilliant campaigns she has managed in her previous role."
