Men’s Health appoints Scott Henderson as editor and content director

Pacific Magazines has appointed Scott Henderson as editor and content director of Men’s Health Australia.

Henderson has been the magazine’s digital editor for the past year, and prior to that was the co-founder and creative director of swimwear brand All I Sea.

“With his experience, Scott brings a deep insight into what truly engages and motivates men to action when it comes to health and lifestyle,” said Gereurd Roberts, CEO of Pacific Magazines.

“This, coupled with his drive to extend the brand and focus on the build of new products, audiences and revenue streams, makes him the perfect candidate to spearhead Australia’s number one healthy lifestyle brand for men. We’re delighted to promote him to the role.”

The appointment follows the exit of previous editor Luke Benedictus, who left the company to launch a parenting platform for dads.

Henderson said: “I’m incredibly grateful to Luke Benedictus and the entire Men’s Health team for the work they have done in positioning Men’s Health for an exciting future, to continue to grow and evolve with our readers.

“I couldn’t be prouder to be part of a brand that has been so crucial in supporting Australian men for more than 21 years. To be given the opportunity to now lead the ongoing expansion and innovation of Men’s Health is a huge honour.

“I’m looking forward to exploring new opportunities for the brand at a time when health is more important to Australians than ever – not just physical health, but mental health, emotional health and beyond. We’ll be finding new ways to engage Aussie men, educating and inspiring them, and making good health accessible to all of them.”
