Robertson Murray Literary Agency is a division of the talent agency Arlington Management
Charlotte Robertson, former sales and marketing director and paperback publisher at Faber, has launched her literary agency, first announced last summer. The Robertson Murray Literary Agency is a division of the talent agency Arlington Management Ltd, run by Hilary Murray.
Robertson has worked as an agent at Aitken Alexander and at United Agents, as well as in publishing at Faber, Simon & Schuster, Pan Macmillan, Penguin, Hodder Headline and Reed Books.
She said: "After four wonderful years at Faber, the opportunity to return to agenting with my own company under the Arlington umbrella was too good to resist. Having worked with Hilary and her stellar list of TV clients in the past, I know that we have a great foundation on which to build an exciting list - both from the roster of big names at Arlington and also finding the next generation of storytellers."
Murray said: "The world of books and television has never been more co-dependent. It's a natural step for Arlington to launch a book agency and in Charlotte I have found the best possible person to make it a success. She brings a huge wealth of expertise and knowledge to the company and has proved time and again through her impressive career that she knows how to make bestsellers."
Murray's clients include Ben Fogle, Kirstie and Phil, George Clarke, Tessa Dunlop, Matt Tebbutt and Anna Richardson.
