Executive Life relaunched

Following a brief hiatus this summer, Executive Life magazine has been revamped and relaunched. With a different theme for every issue, the magazine is aimed at professionals interested in luxury living, covering topics from classic cars, timepieces and tailoring, to fine dining and luxury properties. Published once every two months by UMS International, Executive Life will be sent to all subscribers of Bloomberg Businessweek Middle East. The title will also be available from book stores and supermarkets, with the relaunched edition – The Style Issue – out now. An Executive Life website is expected to launch by November 2015.

“Each edition of Executive Life tackles vital issues like wealth management, looking and feeling good, traveling smarter and exploring new destinations,” says Ravi Raman, Vice President, UMS International. “It’s the perfect lifestyle accompaniment for our readers, who are discerning and demand an intelligent read.”



Digital Ink launches in Dubai

Content services agency Digital Ink have launched in Dubai. Covering a network of freelance journalists, editors, photographers and producers based in the region, Digital Ink supply social media content, features, interviews, copy-editing, translation and video services to media outlets and brands.

Headed up by Managing Director Rachel McArthur, Digital Ink is currently responsible for editing T Emirates – the UAE version of T: The New York Times Style Magazine, and Executive Series – a lifestyle print publication that is a supplement to Bloomberg Businessweek ME. Rachel brings a wealth of knowledge to her new role having worked across various publications for the past decade including Emirates Business 24/7, Explorer and Yahoo! Middle East.

“When it comes to UAE media, we’ve found that more and more publishers and digital companies are looking for freelancers to cover full-time staff on holiday, as well as perhaps cover events they cannot attend or work one-off projects,” says Rachel. “Approaching us saves editors the time of having to look for contributors, and they trust that we will pair them with the right people. We also work with brands – providing everything from web content to more creative campaigns.”
