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.
