CEO, Aevitas Creative Management UK
I’ve been a book publishing professional for more than 30 years. I’m CEO of the U.K. office of the transatlantic literary agency Aevitas Creative Management. I’m also executive director of the Baillie Gifford Prize, one of the world’s leading awards for non-fiction books. From 1999 to 2014 I was the founding publisher of the award-winning independent publisher, Atlantic Books. From 2012–2018 I was the chair of Wimbledon Book Festival, where I continue to serve as a trustee. I’m a very experienced public speaker.
