YACHT STYLE magazine, owned by Lux Inc Integrated Media group and distributed across Asia – with offices in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and Hong Kong – will become a bi-monthly publication from the start of 2019, with John Higginson starting as its new managing editor from November 1.
YACHT STYLE has been a quarterly publication since it was founded in 2007. The first bi-monthly issue will be January/February 2019. Higginson, 45, has been working in the public relations and publishing industry since 1996, and his editorial background includes yachting, property, lifestyle and sports.
“This is a really positive period for yachting globally and in Asia in particular, so I’m looking forward to helping YACHT STYLE continue to grow and working with the Lux Inc Media team on a range of exciting media platforms and events,” Higginson said.
Gael Burlot, CEO and Publisher of Lux Inc Integrated Media said, “We are thrilled to welcome John to the YACHT STYLE team. We’ve known John for over 15 years since we first worked together, and he will be a great addition. YACHT STYLE becoming bi-monthly, with more content to be offered in print, digital and events is a clear signal that there is an accrued interest from the industry and a growing audience in this part of the world.”
