New House & Leisure editor
Charl Edwards is the new editor of the recently revamped House & Leisure (HL). “He brings with him a holistic brand focus and keen eye for detail of both print and digital, as well as a fresh outlook needed for this distinguished role,” comments Julia Raphaely, Associated Media Publishing CEO.
Edwards’ prior experience includes being homeware editor at online retailer superbalist.com and online editor and art director of Elle Decoration.
Says Edwards, “I’m thrilled to be joining the AMP family and to lead the HL team, continuing the great work of my predecessor, Tiaan Nagel. House & Leisure constantly inspired me during my childhood (since its inception in 1993 by industry greats Sumien Brink and Jane Raphaely), and has greatly informed my understanding and love for the South African decor world throughout my career. I’m both humbled and honoured to be taking charge in my role as HL editor, and to serve our readers and consumers only the best content that they have come to expect from this beloved brand.”
