Friday Five: Cat Gold, Client Relationship Manager at Uprated
We’re pleased to announce that Matthew Cole, currently Senior Commissioning Editor at Pan Macmillan, will join Northbank Talent Management on 20 March as literary agent, assuming responsibility for the agency’s non-fiction representation across current affairs, popular science, popular history, memoir and lifestyle books, working in close collaboration with the agency’s broadcast, corporate and brand partnerships agents to strengthen Northbank’s full-service offer.
Northbank CEO Diane Banks says: “Matt has an impeccable track record commissioning titles which align perfectly with Northank’s areas of expertise. He is a natural dealmaker and we are impressed with his entrepreneurial attitude, which makes him the ideal person to take our non-fiction business forward as the agency continues to grow.”
Matthew Cole says: “I have always been impressed by the huge impact Northbank has made in its relatively short existence, with a truly enviable roster of authors and projects. The opportunity to work with Diane and connect authors with readers in a new capacity was one that I couldn’t resist. After many happy years at Pan Macmillan it is difficult to leave, but I am enormously excited to get started and help drive Northbank to even greater levels of success.”
We look forward to welcoming Matt to the team.
