Born in Melbourne in 1970, Justin Randles began his media career in 1992 when he landed an advertising sales role on FreeSurf, a free surfing magazine produced for the southern Australian state of Victoria. In 1994 the publication expanded nationally and Randles relocated to Sydney as FreeSurf Austalia’s National Advertising Manager where he spent two years before joining niche business publisher Strategic Publishing Group which was later acquired by newspaper publisher John Fairfax Holdings.
At Strategic, Randles started as an account manager on technology management monthly, MIS, and gradually took on more responsibility and rose to the advertising manager position before being relocated to Singapore to launch MIS in Asia where he stayed for almost two years. On returning to Sydney, Randles took on the publisher role of Strategic's flagship title, MIS, and added the publisher job on CFO shortly afterwards.
In 2001 Randles left Fairfax to start his own publishing company, Lighthouse Independent Media. Over 10 years on, Lighthouse has grown to become a publisher of high-quality niche business-to-business multimedia brands targeted at key business decision-makers in medium & large organisations. Its first brand, Marketing, quickly rose to market dominance while Human Resources, launched in August 2004, became the most read publication amongst HR professionals in Singapore after just seven editions.
As Group Managing Director, Randles leads Lighthouse's strategic direction and is responsible for monetising the company's market leading products and influential audiences.
