Varun Godinho joins Global Citizen

Global Citizen magazine has welcomed Varun Godinho to the role of Digital Editor. With over nine years of experience in journalism, Varun has previously worked with publications including; Time Out, Times of India and, most recently, GQ. In his new role, he will oversee the digital editorial content for Global Citizen magazine as well as its social media channels.

“The Middle East is at an exciting place within the digital editorial sphere,” says Varun. “Digital isn’t here to replace print, but to be the perfect partner in crime. Global Citizen is delivering an editorially rich experience across multiple platforms and I look forward to being a part of that team here.” to become e-commerce site

Condé Nast has announced that will become the home of its new e-commerce business platform. Launching in the UK in Autumn, the concept will replace the website’s news and fashion show reports content. Following the UK launch, the e-commerce website will grow to incorporate the market from the US, with other major countries to follow. How this will affect is yet to be determined.

The new e-commerce platform will operate as a stand-alone business, although it will still come under the ownership of Condé Nast. It will look to connect fashion companies as well as upscale brands from other sectors – such as beauty, travel and technology – to potential buyers, including readers of other Condé Nast print and online publications Vogue, Vanity Fair and GQ. The new venture will be headed up by Franck Zayan, who previously worked as Head of e-commerce for Galeries Lafayette.
