Larry Finlay

Managing Director, Transworld Publishers

Biography

I have been with Transworld Publishers for the last 34 years, and its Managing Director for the last 16, prior to which I worked as a Publisher and Marketing Director, having started out as copywriter. When I left Manchester University with a degree in Politics and Philosophy, I joined a bank in the City. I hated every day of my time there, but then fell on my feet in publishing. I LOVE my job and would relish the chance to talk to students about why a publishing career can be fulfilling and stimulating.
Transworld publishes a range of bestselling writers including Kate Atkinson, Dan Brown, Bill Bryson, Lee Child, Stephen Hawking, Paula Hawkins, Terry Pratchett and Sophie Kinsella.
