Monocle Appoints New Publisher

Anders Braso has been named the new publisher of Monocle. Braso was most recently Monocle’s advertising director. He has been with the magazine since it launched in 2007. Braso is succeeding Pamela Mullinger, who will be tasked with increasing the magazine’s North American presence.

Monocle has defied the market and found a formula for mixing print, audio and online that appeals to readers and also our commercial partners,” said editor Andrew Tuck, in a statement. “Anders has been key to that success with his commitment and drive and I am excited about the opportunities for us to continue to grow in 2014 with him at the helm.”

Braso’s appointment is effective immediately.

Fly Your Byline to a Global Audience

Tyler Brûlé, founder of Monocle, first got the idea for his global pub from observing consumers at airports. “It was frequently Wallpaper* and The Economist. I decided to merge elements of the two but refine the package,” the journo/entrepreneur/publisher told Mediabistro.

Although the pub’s staffers are likely to be seen reading The Financial Times and The International Herald Tribune, editor Andrew Tuck says Monocle has its own definition of what’s newsworthy. “We think that a lot of news organizations, especially [those committed to] daily or weekly news, tend to run around in a herd,” he said.

Monocle also strives to take care of its writers. “If a writer goes on a story for us, they will have a water-tight itinerary, they will travel with a reasonable airline, and they have my mobile number and know that if they want to give me a ring at midnight if anything has gone wrong, that’s what I’m here for,” said Tuck.
