As we enter the 25th anniversary year for Men's Health, we're bringing new vision to this important global brand."
"Dave has been a talented partner for our brand and books business over the past fifteen years. Under his leadership, Men's Health grew to become the largest men's magazine brand in the world, his book franchises were perennial bestsellers, and Women's Health grew at an incredible pace, both domestically and internationally. I am very thankful for his creativity and leadership, and truly wish him all the best as he grows in new ways and in new places."
Phillips joined Men's Health in 2003, serving as the Editor of MensHealth.com as well as Executive Editor of the magazine.
