Mark Hedley


Mark Hedley is Managing Director of Threadneedle Media, the publisher of Square Mile, Foodism, Escapism and HEDGE magazines. He was part of the team that founded Square Mile magazine more than 18 years ago – and his day-to-day job is editing the title. 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 the editor of a luxury lifestyle magazine.
