Poston added: “I have admired Imagem, their ethos and culture for some time and have enjoyed a great relationship with Kim and her team, which I am very happy to now be joining.
“Imagem is a shining example of a modern publishing company that values strong relationships with their artists and writers and has an impeccable reputation for delivering.”
