Future’s Technology Group announces new editors for Gizmodo UK and T3
Tom Dennis named Editor of T3
17/10/14 Future, the international media group and leading digital business, today announces new editorial appointments for its Technology Group. Matt Hill, previously Editor of T3 Magazine and Digital Editions, joins Gizmodo UK to lead the team as Editor. Tom Dennis becomes Editor of T3, following his time working on Future’s digital brands including the award-winning Photography Week.
Gizmodo UK launched in September 2011, quickly doubling its audience and making it the UK’s fastest-growing technology website. The site currently averages over 1.6m monthly global unique users.
Before guiding T3 Tablet Edition to become the UK’s highest-selling digital edition as Editor, Matt was previously Deputy Editor for T3’s record two PPA Award wins, and before that Deputy Editor of Britain’s biggest men’s magazine, ShortList.
Matt says: “Gizmodo is a huge international brand with an enviable level of reader engagement in the UK. I’m a big fan of its informed but irreverent take on the wider world of tech, design and and am looking forward to working with Gawker and Future to build on the site and community that previous editor Kat Hannaford created.”
Established in 1996, T3 is the world’s leading consumer technology lifestyle brand. The 2014 T3 Gadget Awards took place on October 2 and named the Sony Playstation 4 as its Gadget of the Year. Tom was named Digital Native of the Year by the PPA in 2013 for his work on Future’s digital brands.
Tom says: “I’m delighted to be offered the editor’s chair on one of Future’s most prestigious titles. T3 is a phenomenally important brand to its worldwide audience – an audience with a ferocious appetite for the latest consumer tech news, reviews and opinion. I can’t think of a more exciting time to be leading the magazine and its digital editions.”
Paul Newman, Group Editor-in-Chief of Future’s Technology Group, adds: “We couldn’t have two more talented people filling these critical roles. Matt has all the journalistic instinct and digital nous required to take Gizmodo to new heights, while Tom will bring a wealth of magazine experience and creative flair to T3.”
Both appointments are with immediate effect.
