Editor - Online, Contracts, Supplements
at Gulf News, ITP Publishing, HT
June 2001 - July 2016
In June 2014 I was tasked with launching the Guides section for Gulf News Online. By the time I had left, it had become the third highest-read section on the website after News and Business clocking in over 500,000 page views daily. I managed a team of four writers, several freelancers, a team of designers, online production, GN TV crew, in-house marketing and external public relations. Before that at ITP Publishing, I managed and oversaw all editorial content for six monthly B2B titles covering construction, hospitality, travel, architecture and interiors and manufacturing. Apart from the daily management of a 25-members team, my work included conceptualising and creating yearly content calendars, sourcing people, making contacts for the organisation, planning content and executing events such as sponsored round-tables, conferences and awards. I edited copy and wrote across all magazines as well as chased up big interviews with hard-to-get personalities.
