An experienced production specialist with a broad knowledge in both traditional and digital contexts, Georgina joined Gill Books in 2019 as Senior Production Controller for Trade. She oversees the production process from edited manuscript to the delivery of the finished product and is responsible for ensuring Gill’s books reach the market on time and on budget.
Georgina began her publishing career in Hodder Education, Hachette UK, as an eager Production Assistant with an eye for detail. She was heavily involved in the transition from traditional to digital publishing with a stint as an ePub specialist, and subsequently as Senior Production Controller. This was followed by five years working as a Senior Performance Management Specialist within the Abu Dhabi Department of Education and Knowledge, UAE, where she was responsible for the publication of governmental performance reports.
Georgina has worked in the publishing industry for nine years and holds an MA degree in Publishing from the University of the Arts London, with a specialism in book production, and a BA (Hons) degree in Communications and Creative Multimedia from Dundalk Institute of Technology.
In her spare time Georgina loves to travel to far-flung places, and is now comfortably settling into life at home in Ireland with her husband and two Arabian cats.
