David Davies

Managing Director in Content, Lions Festivals

David Davies’ well-known reputation as a platform-enhancing content developer precedes his arrival at the prestigious Lions Festivals. Indeed, David can call on over 20 years of experience leading content businesses, including as Editorial Director of Heat, Editor-in-Chief of FHM and Q magazines, and running DMC Publishing, a media and events business focussed on clubbing and electronic music. More recently, he joined international art publisher Phaidon as CEO, leading to its successful sale, and helped launch Grazia magazine in the U.K. before signing on with Lions Festivals. The inspiration-fired Lions Festivals find a kindred spirit in David, who is adept at channelling and concentrating creative energies for maximum thrust.
