John Pilley joins Little Brother Books

Published on: 23rd August 2018

Following the last two years of growth for Little Brother Books, the company has reinforced its sales team.

John Pilley will be joining Little Brother Books as head of sales.

John has worked in the publishing industry for over 20 years, initially working in the travel sector before securing a position with Lonely Planet. After this he moved to Guinness World Records, which led him to take on the role of head of publishing sales for its iconic titles for ten years. John’s extensive experience in both publishing and the unique Annuals market is an ideal fit with LBB’s vision and growth plans.

John commented, “It’s fantastic to be back in the familiar world of publishing after leaving London to start up a holiday cottage business. The role at Little Brother Books is a perfect fit for me. Children’s books, and particularly Annuals, are a perennial favourite so it’s great to be working with such a vibrant and strong brand-led publishing house.”
