(708 Broad Street, 30901)
Rebecca Wesson Darwin is cofounder & CEO of the Allée Group LLC, formed with partners Pierre Manigault and J. Edward Bell III. After moving to Charleston, South Carolina, following a successful career in publishing in New York City, Darwin and cofounder Manigault realized there was a need for a publication that spoke to the soul of the South. Their goal was to craft a magazine that would appeal to both men and women interested in the sporting life, adventurous travel, and good food and drink.
For over a decade, Garden & Gun has consistently been recognized as an industry leader. Award highlights include #2 hottest launch of 2007 among more than 700 magazines that were started that year; 2011 and 2015 National Magazine Awards in General Excellence; a winner of the 2013 National Magazine Award for Most Delicious Cover; a finalist of the 2014 James Beard Foundation Journalism Award; and 2018 Society of Publication Designers Brand of the Year.
Darwin grew up in Columbia, South Carolina, attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and then moved to New York. She established her career at GQ, where she implemented nation retail advertising and promotions programs. She later became the first female publisher of the New Yorker, the publisher of Mirabella, and the marketing director of Fortune. She served as the president and CEO of the National Associate for Female Executives, and currently serves on the board for Spoleto Festival USA and the Institute for the Arts and Humanities for her alma mater. Her immersion in the worlds of media, fashion, advertising, and business brings an understanding and grace to the world of Garden & Gun.
