Nick Edgley has survived for 35 years in the dog-eat-dog world of international media sales including director-level positions at the Daily Telegraph, Associated Newspapers (home of the Daily Mail) and Press Holdings Media Group (best known for The Spectator).
In recent years he has specialised in working with luxury watch clients, particularly during the lifetime of Revolution magazine, for which he was part of the launch team in 2014.
The market for glossy watch titles has been in turmoil in recent years, with even the once mighty Revolution clipping back to two editions per year as major Swiss brands grappled with the transition towards digital marketing with the likes of Instagram, Google and Youtube.
Ever a man to sniff opportunity, Mr Edgley has realised that working for a brand, rather than selling to them, is the way forward. So he has taken a role with WOLF, the world’s biggest manufacturer of watch winders and other accessories.
“It is my pleasure to announce that Nick has joined WOLF as director of sales for UK, Ireland and Europe,” says the company’s CEO Simon Wolf.
“Over the years he developed a very successful business working with key luxury clients and publishers, most recently as commercial manager for Revolution magazine in the UK. He will work alongside Chloe Spencer in the UK and continue our journey in bringing the brand to retailers across Europe,” he adds.
