"Nikki was the first person we asked to run Melville House U.K. back in 2013, but she had a mega-bestseller just breaking--The Hundred-Year-Old Man--and so our timing then wasn't fortuitous," said Melville House co-publisher Dennis Johnson. "But we're thrilled to finally hook up with her now. An experienced company head who's savvy at acquisitions, production, sales and marketing, her skill-set is formidable."
Griffiths said she is "incredibly proud to have joined the Melville House team, extending our reach in the U.K. The list is exciting and diverse and I look forward to contributing to the future of such a vibrant and respected independent."
