Rob Munro-Hall *

Group MD, Magazine Media, Bauer Media

Rob leads Bauer Media’s UK magazine business: a portfolio of over 50 magazines, which sell 70m copies a year, comprising some of the UK’s best-loved titles: Grazia, Empire, heat, Motor Cycle News, CAR, Garden News and Angling Times. Rob joined the business (formerly emap) in 1990 as Editor of MCN (Motor Cycle News), after various editorial posts on national newspapers, including The Sun and Daily Star. He moved on to edit Carweek and CAR and then assumed a number of publishing roles before becoming Managing Director of the emap Bikes portfolio. He left this role in 2003 to head up emap Australia, which he built into one of the country's most successful and admired publishers. He returned to London in 2006 to head up the men's, music and film portfolios. He then ran Bauer Media’s Specialist division for six years, before Bauer Media’s magazine media brands were combined into one new business and Rob was appointed to his new and expanded role, in September 2015.
