Currently Group Commercial Director of Wired Media Group, Sargent will add the GQ titles to his role incorporating Wired and Ars Technica.

“Nick is entrepreneurial and has delivered significant multi-platform success for the Wired Group in both the consumer and B2B space. His business acumen encompasses all points on the dial including events and a consulting business, and Sargent will ensure the brand potential of GQ continues to be fully developed. The breadth of Sargent’s new role is in recognition of his significant abilities, backed up by the might of each of these brands within their respective markets,” commented Read.

Nick Sargent remarked: “The combined audience of the Wired Group and GQ in its various iterations highlights the domination of the luxury opinion-forming male media landscape by Condé Nast. I am hugely honoured to have been asked to take on the significant GQ remit in addition to my current responsibilities; there are obvious synergies between the brands. The GQ team is recognised as leading the field within men’s luxury lifestyle, and 2018 will bring exciting new opportunities for our partners.”

Sargent joined Condé Nast in 2015 from The Economist Group, where he was Head of Client Sales UK and Energy Specialist EMEA, prior to which he was International Account Manager of The Economist Newspaper. Previous roles have included positions at Time Out, The Guardian and The Observer.

This appointment follows the recent announcement that Vanessa Kingori, current Publisher of British GQ and GQ Style, is named Publishing Director of British Vogue. Kingori and Sargent will take up their respective new positions on the 2nd January 2018.
