Editor in Chief & Chairman
Tyler Brûlé is widely considered one of the most influential media innovators of his generation. Brûlé launched Monocle in 2007 and since its inception the brand has grown into a unique global media entity that successfully combines print, web, retail and broadcast components.
Brûlé was born in Canada and moved to the UK to pursue a career as a foreign correspondent. He worked as a reporter for the BBC, before turning to print journalism where he wrote for The Independent, Stern, The Sunday Times, The Observer and Vanity Fair.
In 1996 Brûlé launched Wallpaper*, a title that became a publishing phenomenon when it brought together the worlds of design, architecture, fashion, food and travel in one title for the first time and went on to sell in over 50 countries. The magazine won numerous awards and in 2001 Brûlé became the youngest ever recipient of the British Society of Magazine Editors Lifetime Achievement Award.
Monocle has become the second ground-breaking publication of Brûlé’s career. It is a monthly international briefing on current affairs, business, culture and design read by over 84,000 paying readers across 65 markets, with an additional one million people tuning into its radio service, Monocle24, every month.
In 2011, Brûlé was awarded Ad Age’s ‘Editor of the Year’ trophy, and unprecedented award for an international editor. Brûlé is a regular speaker on topics ranging from media to urbanism to international affairs. He is a Canadian and British citizen.Back
