Laurie Robertson has been promoted to associate agent at PFD.
Robertson joined PFD in 2017 as assistant to PFD c.e.o. Caroline Michel. She has also been looking after the agency’s serial rights and journalism.
Tim Bates, head of books, said: “Laurie has done a great job alongside Caroline, while also working on serial rights, and is now beginning to build a list of her own, which includes a four-way auction for a debut short-story collection.
“Laurie is brilliant with contracts, as well as being a very sharp negotiator, and we’re greatly looking forward to watching her grow and thrive. I’m certain that she will make a wonderful agent.”
