Parkin, Harris and Horobin will all report directly to Bonnier Books UK CEO Perminder Mann, who commented: "With 15 Sunday Times bestsellers this year so far, our trade publishing is going from strength to strength and I'm confident that it will continue to thrive and evolve under the proven and dedicated leadership of Kate, Jane and James. Over the last three years, they have successfully built our fiction division from the ground up and are widely known and respected within the industry. I'm looking forward to working with them to transform Bonnier Books UK into a fully-fledged publisher."
