Visitors to our website will be familiar with our ‘Meet our Authors’ section. While we aim to put our authors first in everything we do, we also want to tell you a little about the people who help to transform an idea and a manuscript into a published title.
In the latest in our ‘Meet the Publisher’ series, we would like to introduce our Head of Production, Damian Baker. A native of Tauranga, New Zealand, Damian first moved to Newcastle in 2012 with his wife and son, and joined Cambridge Scholars Publishing in the summer of 2019.
Damian has had a long and varied career in print and production, from an early career as a Graphic Artist, to a 7-year stint for Fuji-Xerox New Zealand, in addition to managing a high-volume digital colour press for a Newcastle-based commercial printer.
Outside of work, Damian is an active member of the local Scouts Association, which his two sons, aged 7 and 11, attend. The Baker family enjoy rugby, surfing in the summer months, visiting National Trust locations, and exploring the spectacular Northumberland countryside.
When he does find time to relax, Damian can usually be found outdoors in the garden, ideally in front of a barbeque!
