Wendy Rimmington appointed as new MD for Alban Books

Alban BooksCONGRATULATIONS TO WENDY RIMMINGTON, appointed as new MD of Alban Books with effect from November 1st 2010. Wendy’s appointment follows on from the sad death of former MD, Jane Grounsell, reported here last month.

Wendy’s previous experience includes time with Chambers Harrap, the Penguin Group, the BBC and Christian Aid, as well as in the US marketplace, most recently with Pearson, Boston, where she was involved in e-publishing development.

Commenting on her new role, Wendy said, “Having moved to Edinburgh in 2004 to run Chambers Harrap, after a very happy career at Penguin and the BBC, I am delighted to once again be working so closely with American Publishers and to have the chance to continue Jane’s legacy.”

Speaking on behalf of Alban Books’ Board, Claire VanderKam, Vice President and Treasurer at Eerdmans said, “As Alban turns a page in its history, we are confident that Wendy is the right person to lead us forward. I believe Wendy and Alban Books will be a winning combination.”

  2. I know Wendy from when she was my agent and would love her to get in touch. Since last we spoke I have had my book Squirrels on the Roof published on Amazon and Twitter and wonder if we could do something together? The book is about some octogenrian china restorers who start making copies of Meissen in a scam with some interesting results. With the curtrent interest in ‘oler’ fiction it could do very well. I have two other books waiting for print but would like to get to a wider audience. Wendy, if you get this and remember me, Anne Dew, we met at the Goethe Institute in S Ken, remember? It would be lovely to hear from you. Regards Anne

    • Wendy has long since left Alban Books so it’s unlikely she’ll see this: I suggest that you run a Google search for her, where you should be able to find her on LinkedIn and twitter.
