Wasmuth to leave Leading Edge

Jayne Wasmuth will shortly be leaving Leading Edge Books to pursue other opportunities. “While in this role, it has been a privilege and pleasure to work with booksellers and publisher partners over the last 8 months”, she says. “I feel very proud to have played even a small part in continuing the strength of the fiercely strong independent bookselling sector of the New Zealand book trade. I have every confidence that the strength of the group will continue and I look forward to watching that happen.”

Stepping straight into the role of General Manager will be Keith Rowe. Keith has worked with Leading Edge in Australia over many years, most recently as Manager – Non Trade Benefits and General Manager – Leading Edge Academy. Keith has a wealth of experience to bring to the group and is looking forward to working closely with the industry in developing group activity.

After a transition and hand over period Jayne Wasmuth’s last day will be Friday 11 December.
