Mark Pickup has been appointed Commercial Director of Shortlist Dubai and Shortlist Abu Dhabi across both print and digital, effective June 1, 2015. Previously Head of Sales for What’s On and Hype at Motivate Publishing, Mark brings years of experience including a three year stint as Group Head of the Ahlan! Division at ITP.
“I am very excited to be joining the Shortlist team,” says Mark. “I am very familiar with the Shortlist title and as I have worked in the hospitality sector of media for the past seven years, I strongly feel Dubai is ready for a fresh entertainment product that also has a strong fashion element. Shortlist will have a huge 65,000 weekly distribution and I am very grateful to have been given the opportunity to launch it.”
