Strathmore has a permanent staff of five. In addition, we have an address book with a very wide range of experienced freelancers: illustrators, editors, producers, engineers, abridgers, composers, and artists. 

Nicholas Jones

Managing Director

Nicholas Jones studied biological science at university, and expected to go into scientific publishing, but his first job at Michael Joseph found him copy-editing Dick Francis, and he then went to Thames Television to manage tie-in books, records and merchandise, where he was able to use his interests in both typography and sound recording and learn many of the skills that have come into play at Strathmore. He ran the publishing and bookselling operations at the Royal Institute of British Architects for eight years before establishing Strathmore in 1995.

Becky Mitchell

Office Manager

Becky joined Strathmore at the beginning of 2018 to take on the accounts, generally running the office, and looking after the green room. Previously she worked in ELT video and audio production, including 14 years at Motivation Sound Studios – where she was part of the team hosting Strathmore audiobook recordings before the creation of the studios at Sans Walk.

Elspeth McPherson

Production Director

Elspeth has worked with Strathmore Publishing since April 2000. She used to produce and edit audiobook recordings but since the arrival of her two daughters she now looks after all the studio bookings – casting readers, co-ordinating producers and the post production team for each project, and trying to keep everything to schedule. She also typesets and project-manages the printed books and journals that Strathmore produces.

Zoë Taylor

Studio Assistant

Zoë studied BA History at SOAS with a focus on South Asia, graduating with a First in 2018. Zoë joined Strathmore after finishing university, and now administers our archive and provides green room support. She enjoys the variety of work which Strathmore carries out, and meeting the interesting people who come through the door.
