John Brodie has been named as editor-in-chief of Mr Porter.com, the menswear arm of Net-a-Porter.
Brodie comes to the role with extensive experience in the magazine industry, having held staff positions at magazines including long, successful stints at GQ, Variety, Spy Magazine and Fortune.
Most recently, he has been editing the head of Google’s new book entitled How Google Works, which is being published this autumn.
Mr Porter is read by two million men every month around the world and supports Net-a-Porter’s online shopping business that delivers to over 170 countries globally. Brodie will also edit and commission for The Journal, the weekly magazine of Mr Porter and the site’s bi-monthly, globally distributed print publication.
Brodie says “I’ve long been an admirer of the Net-a-porter Group and its business leaders and have been a happy contributor to Mr Porter since its launch. I consider myself very fortunate to be joining such a smart, creative and innovative team who together have redefined the way men shop, read and talk about style.”
Brodie will lead a team consisting of editors Jodie Harrison and Dan Rookwood in London and New York respectively, as well as style director Dan May. Brodie starts with the company mid-May.
