Man of Many celebrates 10 year anniversary


Frank Arthur: “We empower our readers to make a positive investment in themselves and this milestone goes a long way in proving that”

Men’s lifestyle publication Man of Many is celebrating a decade of publishing.

Founded in 2012 by then-housemates Frank Arthur and Scott Purcell, the men’s lifestyle publication has risen from a part-time hobby to recording over 40,000,000 unique visitors and more than 75,000,000 global pageviews in the past year.

The publication has secured partnerships with brands such as Samsung, Microsoft, R.M. Williams, TAG Heuer, IWC, Uber, Hublot, Polo Ralph Lauren, Gillette, The Macallan, Longines, Penfolds, MINI, ASICS, and Cupra.

Reflecting on the past 10 years, Arthur said the brand’s transformation from a two-person operation to a multi-faceted enterprise with an in-house team of more than 15 was a testament to Man of Many’s audience-first approach.

“In the early days, we simply wanted to help guys discover the latest in products, culture and style,” Arthur said. “But after 10 years, we’ve come to realise that Man of Many is an avenue for so much more. We empower our readers to make a positive investment in themselves and this milestone goes a long way in proving that. We couldn’t be more proud of the team that we’ve created and the community that we’ve brought together.”

In 2022, the organisation became the first Australian publisher to be 100% Carbon Neutral & Climate Active Certified, alongside becoming a member of the Australian Press Council and a Registered News Business under the News Media Bargaining Code by ACMA.

According to co-founder Scott Purcell, the publication’s growth has allowed Man of Many to stretch outside of the digital space, supporting the Waves of Wellness Foundation and launching its own whiskey in collaboration with Oregon distillery Westward.

Purcell said, “Over the past decade, we’ve grown from a small bootstrapped Australian publication to a sustainable independent media platform, securing over 200 advertising campaigns in 2022 alone.

“But it’s not just about the numbers for us. We really made it a point to give back in 2022, both to the community and to our readers. We’re incredibly grateful for all of the support we’ve received over the past decade, and we can’t wait to see what the next 10 years will bring.”
