Rosie Stewart: Editorial Director & Business Development Lead

Rosie has been working in publishing since 2009 after graduating from the University of Exeter with a first-class degree in English Literature with French and German Studies. After establishing a firm foundation in academic production and editorial services as team leader at Florence Production, Rosie transitioned to journal management at Elsevier.

While overseeing the editorial and production processes for a portfolio of Elsevier's academic journals, Rosie was also involved in the testing and rollout of a bespoke customer services portal, interactive reporting tools, and ground-breaking workflow processes to streamline and expedite article publishing. Rosie also trained and mentored several intakes of new staff and interns.

After moving back to book production in 2017, Rosie formed River Editorial with Julie Willis in 2020, working with a portfolio of academic and education clients to provide exceptional project management and editorial services. Her roles have included project management, production services, editorial services, supplier management and business development.

River Editorial was acquired by Westchester Publishing Services UK Ltd in March 2021.
