He will oversee the editorial and commercial teams across Bauer’s Lifestyle Division, which includes titles such as FHM, Empire, Heat and Closer. He is covering current digital director Andrea Kilbourne’s maternity leave.
Wright joined Sky in 1996 as commercial director. He left in 1999 to join Sports.com and in 2002 co-founded digital sports agency Aura Sports, which was sold to BSkyB in 2006.
He left Sky last July to become a digital media consultant.
