New management for BOOKSELLERS ASSOCIATION UK
Booksellers Association (BA) recently introduced Rosamund de la Hey as the new BA president. Rosamund de la Hey, owner and founder of The Mainstreet Trading Company has been made president of the Booksellers Association. Ros takes over the role from Tim Walker who has been president for the past two years.
A former children’s marketing director at Bloomsbury and now owner of The Mainstreet Trading Company in St. Boswells, Hey said, “As a former publisher it was an eye-opener to discover the breadth and depth of the work done by the BA when I opened The Main street Treading Company in 2008 and it is a privilege to be able to be a part of its future at such an exciting time. Tim’s contribution to the BA over the last two years has been amazing and it’s very clear how much impact he has had.”
Tim God fray thanks Tim Walker for all of his fantastic work, “We’re thrilled that Rosamunde is joining the BA as president. What’s particularly special about Rosamunde is that as well as having created a stunning community bookshop, she is also a former publisher, which will be hugely valuable to the BA.”
