Mercedes Forest | Granta

Mercedes Forest

Office and Operations Manager, Granta Publications

I joined Granta in 2011. In my varied role I am responsible for global distribution, subscriptions and customer services for Granta magazine, direct sales fulfillment, accounts payable with a bit of invoicing and credit control. Along with all of this, I manage the office and it’s day to day needs. Outside of work I’m studying for a business degree, I volunteer for different organisations and am a keen fundraiser with a marathon and several other races under my belt.
 
The book I always recommend is called Aftershock by Matthew Green. A very important title that we publised a few years ago. It actually started a movement in the UK for NHS to look after our ex-armed forces personnel’s mental health, especially PTSD. If you haven’t read it, do so now.
