These are the new faces of our magazine industry

Chloe Delamore and Julian Andrews make up the new team at the Magazine Publishers Association (MPA).

The board of the MPA is pleased to confirm two new appointments.

Chloe Delamore takes up the role of Commercial and Administration Executive, and will be responsible for the day-to-day running of MPA business, such as this September’s Magazine Awards and other industry initiatives. For the last four years, Chloe has been Executive Assistant to Bauer CEO (and current MPA Chair) Paul Dykzeul. When the position at the MPA became available several months ago, Chloe put her hand up, and Paul reluctantly let her go – as long as she agreed to first select her own replacement!

Joining her as Commercial Director is Julian Andrews, who returns to magazines after a couple of years away. Julian is no stranger to the MPA, having sat on the board and even serving a term as Vice Chair. A former founder and publisher of Jones Publishing and Tangible Media, behind the launch of Urbis, Dish and TopGearNZ among other mastheads, Julian is well known for his passion and enthusiasm for magazine media.

“I was lucky to a judge for the upcoming magazine awards, which was a provided a great opportunity to catch up on what went on while I was away,” says Julian. “OHBaby’s 180,000 likes on Facebook, the fact that Barker’s 1972 customer magazine helped the retailer secure TopShop distribution, and Woman’s Day publishing pics of the royal baby almost a week before the rest of the world are all fantastic examples of how – no matter what the platform – magazines are an incredibly engaging and influential media.”

“In her time with the MPA, Katrina Horton did a great job of raising the profile of magazines with agencies,” says Paul Dykzeul. “Julian will now concentrate on doing the same thing with direct advertisers, who spend significantly across an even broader spread of our member’s titles. This focus benefits from his experience launching or relaunching more than 25 customer publications over the last 15 years.  We believe we have the best partnership in place to keep magazines top-of-mind for advertisers, retailers, agencies and readers!”
