Will Walters founded Monarch magazine in 2005. He envisioned a publication that would reflect the diversity of the ever-growing African American business professional; a way for the world to view and understand the wants and needs of such a dynamic race; a connectoras well as resource that could be aesthetically pleasing as well as functional; and, a true resource to meet the needs of today’s business professional. Walters imagined a multidimensional publication that would lay the groundwork for a multi-platform media base, which would display inspiring content. Content that is meant to inform and empower those who participate in the Monarch experience. Under his leadership, Monarch has secured covers of popular celebrities and leaders such as entrepreneur and tennis champion Serena Williams, award-winning actress Angela Basset, Academy award nominee Taraji Henson and the first African American President of the United States, Barack Obama. Rapidly, Monarch is positioning itself to be the ultimate lifestyle publication for African American business professionals.
