The publisher of Superyacht Business, Time Inc. (UK), has appointed Dennis O’Neill as the magazine’s new editor. He replaces Juliet Benning who, after three years at the helm, has moved to another senior position within the organisation.
Dennis O’Neill was previously editor of SB from 2008-2012, in which time the magazine was short-listed for Business Magazine of the Year (by the PPA) and he was short-listed for New Business Editor of the Year (by the British Society of Magazine Editors).
Commenting on his appointment, O’Neill says: “I’m delighted to be back at Superyacht Business. Juliet did a great job as editor, and I’m keen to carry on her first-class work in making SB the best business-to-business read in the superyacht industry.”
Dennis O’Neill is a longstanding member of the DAME Award Jury, and during a 25-year career has also been editor of European Boatbuilder and a senior journalist at Motor Boat & Yachting and Yachting Monthly.
After leaving SB in 2012, he was in demand as a freelance editorial consultant before becoming associate editor of IBI in 2015.
