One of London’s leading PR firms in publishing accounts buys a literary agency, and APAC 2021 is announced as a digital conference.
After three decades at the head of UK publicity agency Midas, Steven Williams and Tony Mulliken announce they will retire from their executive roles at the company.
‘Midas had to quickly pivot our business model,’ says Jason Bartholomew in London, ‘to think of a new type of proposals that fit a rapidly changing economic landscape.’
With decades of experience in the offices and cubicles of the business, three publishing veterans are now repping authors as literary agents who hold meetings at 6 a.m.
Activist-filmmaker Jill Soloway will have her own imprint at Amazon Publishing, Topple Books. And London’s powerhouse PR firm Midas names Hodder’s Jason Bartholomew as joint CEO.
