Robbie Burton is the co-owner, and Executive Director and Publisher of Potton & Burton. He joined the company (which was then Craig Potton Publishing) as Managing Editor in 1990 and was its first full-time employee. Since then he has led the development of the company into the fully-formed publishing house that it is today. In recent years he has stepped back from day-to-day management to focus more on acquisition and publishing and maintains a very hands-on involvement in all aspects of the process. In particular he has specialised in the publishing of illustrated books, and apart from the usual commissioning and editorial role, has considerable experience in photo editing, book design, colour management and print production.
