Matthew Jackson, Managing Director, APL Media

Matthew has been with APL Media since 1999. He began his career at APL developing travel trade magazines.

Matthew has led the business since 2003, developed the strategy, created the digital transformation and managed the day to day operations that have transformed the company into one of the UK’s leading travel and lifestyle media businesses producing magazines, newsprint, events, websites, apps and email platforms.

For the last 3 years his key focus has been to shift the business’ focus into new revenue streams - not only digital media and advertising opportunities but live content, video and e-commerce.

A peanut butter connoisseur and father of three, he is happiest climbing a mountain or swinging a golf club.
