Markus Anderson

Tastemaker, Soho House

All paths to membership at Toronto’s Soho House, the pre-eminent meeting place for creative industries, lead to Anderson, the long-time right hand of CEO Nick Jones. 

Anderson has a bloodhound’s nose for tastemakers: he crafts the guest lists for the club’s biggest international parties, creates pop-up clubs during Art Basel Miami and the Berlin film festival, and has amassed a contact list that would make a paparazzo swoon. Those connections come in especially handy during TIFF: this year, Soho threw official parties for 10 films. Lately, Anderson has been busy starting up a new Chicago outpost, and helping open locations in L.A., Mumbai, Barcelona and Istanbul.
