Luke picked up the accolade at the PPA Awards 2018 – one of the most prestigious awards schemes in publishing which recognises the efforts and achievements of individuals and organisations in consumer magazines and business media.

Judges of the Publishing Innovator of the Year award were unanimous in their praise of Luke’s ability to develop and implement successful and innovative content strategies.

“Luke is a real star,” the judges said. “He has diversified revenue streams, making money, and driving engagement across the board. In identifying a million small ways to improve the business, he has made a huge impact that our judges thought was hugely deserving of recognition.”

Since transitioning from the role of editor to content director in October 2017, Luke has successfully managed the edie editorial team and rolled out bold new content plans across the edie website, conferences and annual exhibition – giving the brand a renewed purpose in the process.

Luke has been particularly instrumental in the launch and running of edie’s Mission Possible campaign – which seeks to inspire and empower businesses to scale-up action across all areas of sustainable development.

Last month, edie launched the flagship Mission Possible 2018 report, which explores the key commercial drivers, challenges and opportunities on the road to a low-carbon, resource-efficient planet.
