“In 1995 we were a magazine-only business publishing fewer than 30 titles in 7 countries” said Condé Nast International chairman and chief executive Jonathan Newhouse. “Today we have grown to 117 magazines in 24 markets, along with a thriving digital business and other new brand extensions and joint ventures - we are even opening branded restaurants. Nicholas is a brilliant executive and editor who will provide valuable management know-how and energy.”
