The Granta Books Team
Sales & Marketing Director
Brigid was born and brought up in Scotland, and moved to London after reading French at St Andrews.
Brigid has worked in both publishing and bookselling. Starting at Kogan Page publishers, she moved across the counter to sell business books at the London Business School, and then general books as Group Marketing Manager at Hatchards booksellers. She returned to publishing as Sales Director at Faber and Faber, then Helicon/Hutchinson, but left again to work at the book marketing company Nielsen BookData.
However, she missed the process of publishing, and joined Granta in 2006. As part of the team at Granta & Portobello Books, she loves the business of bringing authors to as wide an audience as possible, through sales agents and bookshops around the world.
When she's not at work, Brigid likes doing up her house and garden in north London, and enjoys playing enthusiastic but technically flawed tennis.
