People in Publishing

Atlantic UK has laid off five people as part of an internal restructuring. Commercial director Daniel Scott is leaving in June, while editorial director Sarah Castleton will exit in mid-April. Three additional jobs are being eliminated in the finance department.

Faber has made a number of changes in its non-fiction and crime fiction publishing teams. Hannah Griffiths has been appointed publishing director, crime alongside her existing paperback role and commissioning in fiction and non-fiction. She will be responsible for growing and developing the crime list. In addition to commissioning and editing literary fiction, senior commissioning editor Angus Cargill will head the crime editorial team. He will be assisted by project editor Katherine Armstrong, who will help him in finding new crime authors.
