Hearst Magazines UK has appointed Miles Dunbar as associate publisher of Esquire effective immediately.
In this newly created role, Miles will assume responsibility for the commercial success of the brand and will focus on developing and growing revenues across platforms.
Miles joins from Guardian News & Media where he was head of fashion client sales. He has over 15 years’ media experience and has held positions including fashion advertising director at Arena, Arena Homme+ and POP, and UK and international fashion advertising manager at Time Inc. (formerly IPC Media).
Miles will report directly into Jacqui Cave, group publishing director of Esquire.
Jacqui says: “2016 was a game changing year for the Esquire brand with an increased ABC, digital traffic of over one million monthly unique users and the launch of Esquire Townhouse. As the shape of our revenues change, it’s the ideal time for an associate publisher to join the team to help fulfil our ambitions. I’m delighted to welcome Miles to the new role. He has extensive experience in the men’s sector and an entrepreneurial approach which we value highly at Hearst.”
Miles says: “I’m so pleased to be joining at this exciting time for both Hearst and Esquire. After 25 years in the UK, Esquire is continuing to set the bar for quality journalism and is constantly innovating its offering to meet and surpass expectations. I’m looking forward to working with a really experienced editorial and commercial team to build on these successes in print, digital and events.”
