In addition to Charlie’s role as Senior Commissioning Editor, Charlie will be responsible for GQ's watch content across print and digital, including the magazine’s annual Watch And Jewellery supplement.

Charlie began his journalism career in 2008 at Wired magazine, where he became Associate Editor, and joined GQ as Commissioning Editor in 2011.

He was made Senior Commissioning Editor in 2016 and his book GQ: How To Win At Life, a collection of interviews with the world's top performers, was published two years later. He now brings his experience and expertise to the Watch Editor role, as GQ continues to expand its coverage of the sector.

Charlie reports directly to Editor-in-Chief, Dylan Jones.
