Farrah Storr is the award-winning editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan. Since taking over the brand in 2015 she led the magazine through a dramatic new look leading to the magazine becoming the best-selling young women’s title in the UK and increasing circulation by an unprecedented 59%.
Prior to this Farrah launched Women’s Health in the UK, where under her leadership it became the most successful women’s magazine launch of the decade. Farrah has held high profile positions at many of the UK’s and Australia’s glossy women’s magazines including features director at Marie Claire in Sydney and Glamour UK.
Farrah is one of the leading voices for millennial women overseeing the Cosmopolitan brand which reaches 10 million women across digital, social and print every month. In 2016 she gave a TEDX London talk on the female leadership in the workplace and in 2018 her first non-fiction book on fearlessness (Step Into The Discomfort Zone) will be published by Piatkus.
