Mark Hedley is Editorial Director of Square Up Group, overseeing the creative output of 20 different media brands. He was part of the team that founded Square Mile magazine more than 13 years ago – and his day-to-day job is editing both Square Mile magazine and its sister title, Hedge magazine. Originally, he began his career as a photographer but rapidly realised, like most great British sportsmen, he was more suited to sitting down. He has a passion for fine wine, fast cars and luxury travel – none of which he can afford, so it’s just as well he became a magazine editor.
