Publishing Operations Director

Photographic portrait of Dan Edwards

I am responsible for the superb and energetic Publishing Operations team. I find this area so exciting because it is about producing the books in the right place, in the right quantity, the right quality and price, at the right time. Our involvement in the publishing process begins early, at acquisition, and continues through to a title’s long tail. I love that we interact with virtually all other publishing departments along the way.

As we move through the 21st century, greater emphasis will be focused on our ESG credentials as a business. We must meet those challenges as our supply chain becomes ever more complex and with a global network of suppliers. Negotiating this successfully, sustainably and at scale, is a fascinating challenge and something I’m passionate about.

A book that's left a deep impression on me: Vile Bodies by Evelyn Waugh

My literary hero: Orlando

A book I'd recommend to everyone: The Ballad of Peckham Rye
