Esquire Singapore gets new managing editor

Mongoose Publishing has appointed Janie Cai as Esquire Singapore’s managing editor. The role was previously held by Mark Tay. Cai steps up from her former role as fashion director on the publication, a role she has filled since its successful launch in September 2012.

She will lead the Esquire Singapore team under direction from Mongoose editorial director Sam Coleman and managing director Russell Channon.

Prior to joining Esquire Singapore, Cai was fashion director at AUGUST Man Singapore.

As managing editor, Janie Cai will be supported with two additional internal promotions as Doreen Tan becomes associate fashion editor and Wayne Cheong steps up to associate editor. Tan and Cheong have both been integral members of the Esquire Singapore team since launch.

“I’m excited to grow the brand and, moving forward, to develop the ideas I have for even more engaging stories, innovative treatments and high quality content that the team are already working on for 2014,” Cai said.
