Tyler Brûlé

Chairman & Editor-in-Chief, Monocle

Life in the ‘Fast Lane’ – and evolving the iconic magazine into a global media and lifestyle brand

9th May 2019

Tyler Brûlé is chairman and editor-in-chief of Monocle. Noted for the jet-set lifestyle journaled in his “Fast Lane” FT column, he launched the magazine in 2007, which has since evolved into a global brand with its own cafes, retail stores and a 24-hour radio station. He is the youngest ever recipient of the British Society of Magazine Editors’ Lifetime Achievement Award. In this in-depth interview, Tyler explains how the 2008 recession changed the face of the magazine through an editorial shift towards entrepreneurialism, speaks candidly about the decision to move print production to Germany because of “volatility” in the UK market, and reflects on his experience of being shot while reporting from Afghanistan.
