Imagine promotes Aaron Asadi to new Head of Publishing role

Imagine Publishing, the global digital content producer, is proud to announce the appointment of Aaron Asadi to the newly created role of Head of Publishing, in charge of all print and digital content, including a portfolio of 20 technology magazines, over 180 bookazines, 25 websites, digital editions and mobile apps.

Reporting directly to Group Managing Director, Damian Butt, Asadi’s remit is to uphold the company’s founding values of quality, innovation and a focus on key technology markets, and to continue Imagine’s track record of successful new print and digital launches throughout 2012/2013.

“I am delighted and proud to become Imagine’s Head Of Publishing,” said Asadi. “Throughout my time with Imagine I have always felt that hard work, good ideas and a commitment to the company’s core values are rewarded – it’s a culture anyone would want to be a part of. But it’s not about the job titles, it’s about the work, and as we complete our transition from magazine publisher to leading multimedia content producer, I am extremely excited about being able to face the challenges and thrills of new platforms head-on.”

Asadi joined Imagine in 2006 and has since worked across many of the company’s popular videogames and entertainment magazines. In 2007 he launched the award-winning SciFiNow, and subsequently took the helm of Imagine’s bookazine division, increasing the output, quality, and annual sales each year to its current record levels. More recently, Asadi has been at the forefront of the development and expansion of digital editions on iPad, iPhone and Android mobile devices.

Group Managing Director, Damian Butt said: “Aaron is an outstanding individual who best exemplifies the attitude, work ethic, and desire for personal improvement that we prize at Imagine. It is therefore only right to see him take the top editorial job as Imagine’s Head of Publishing, and there is no better person to expand our print and digital portfolio as we enter our eighth year of profit growth.”
