Grazia UK appoints Hattie Brett as Editor
Hattie Brett has been appointed Editor of Grazia UK, where she will be responsible for leading the editorial team and forging relationships with commercial partners.
Ellie Austin scored a job at Immediate Media as a Features Writer for Radio Times after graduating from the Magazine Journalism MA course at City University. Here she talks about working in the fast-paced world of a major weekly magazine and the power of a good coffee.
She started her career at Grazia in 2006, a year after the launch of the magazine. During her time, Brett launched Grazia Daily and interviewed David Cameron at The White House in 2012 when she was head of the features team.
Then, she went on to devise and launch The Debrief – Bauer’s digital-first brand – in 2014 before joining The Telegraph in 2015 as Deputy Lifestyle Director, overseeing the fashion and luxury teams across all platforms.
Commenting on the appointment, Rob Munro-Hall, Group Managing Director of Bauer Magazine Media, said: "Hattie brings a wealth of print and digital experience to Grazia, as well as a deep understanding of the brand’s premium audience. We are excited that Hattie is returning to Grazia to inject further fresh innovation and thinking into this world famous brand.”
Brett added, "I’m delighted to be returning to Grazia. It will be a privilege to be at the helm of a brand that has become the mouthpiece for smart, stylish and influential women.”
She will take up her new role in June.
