Martha Fogg

Martha Fogg

Managing Director
Adam Matthew Digital
Pelham House, London Road
Marlborough, Wiltshire
ENGLAND SN8 2AG
Phone:  +447795188727
amdigital.co.uk

Born and lived:  Marlborough, England.

Early life:  Grew up in rural Wiltshire, England as one of a family of eight children.  Educated at University College London (BA English Literature) and Royal Holloway, University of London (MA in Victorian Studies).

Professional career and activities:  Originally trained and worked as a librarian and in archives.  Joined Adam Matthew Digital as the receptionist whilst studying for my Masters degree, and worked my way up from there. 

Family:  Married to Jim, whom I met in high school.  I have three lovely children, Elwin (9), Hester (7) and Albert (3). 

In my spare time:  Three young children keep us very busy, so my hobbies are mostly laundry and toy tidying!  When I do find time, I love opera, theatre, and visiting art galleries.  We have been lucky enough to take the kids all over the world but my favourite place on Earth is Greece, indulging my passion for ancient history. 

Favorite books:  Middlemarch by George Eliot.

Pet peeves:  As a former librarian, it has to be… misshelved books! 

Philosophy:  Grasp life’s opportunities with both hands, even when they seem unachievable or terrifying … you can work out the details later. 

Most memorable career achievement:  Becoming the new Managing Director of Adam Matthew Digital this year is the undoubted highlight in a career that I consider myself very fortunate to have spent at such an exciting, progressive and intereresting company. 

How/where do I see the industry in five years:  Publishers and libraries need to invest heavily in technology that makes hybrid teaching and learning much more effective.  There is so much more we can do to make our content more easily discoverable, seamless to use, and better integrated into courses and learning platforms, whether that’s delivered remotely or in person.  It’s an exciting prospect.

Born and lived:  Born and raised in Germany, lived in Germany, France and the U.S.

Professional career and activities:  I started out in Online Marketing at De Gruyter over 11 years ago, and have been working in the Publisher Partner Team for 5 years now.

Family:  Married, two kids.

In my spare time:  I’m a big fan of running and needle work, both while listening to audiobooks.

Favorite books:  There are too many books to choose from, but I have all-time favorite authors: E.M. Forster, Thomas Mann, Kazuo Ishiguro, Virginia Woolf just to name a few.

How/where do I see the industry in five years:  I hope that in five years publishing will have become more diverse.  There are many great initiatives out there, and I hope that they will have made a difference by then.  Also, I think we’ll see a much greater share of OA publications in the humanities which will hopefully make academic research more equitable too.
