Vogue’s Anna Wintour was appointed the new Chief Content Officer of Condé Nast. She will oversee all of the national and international magazines of the conglomerate. She will still keep her position at Vogue as Global Editorial Director.
The “mother” of all magazines
Anna Wintour was for 32 years Editor-in-Chief for Vogue U.S. In 2019, she was appointed Global Content Advisor of Condé Nast and earlier this month she became the new Chief Content Officer. This means that she will oversee all the national and international publications of the conglomerate. She will report to the CEO, Robert Lynch. This move comes from Condé Nast‘s wider strategy to bring together the US market and the international one. Anna Wintour will still remain one of the main leaders of Vogue magazine, as she keeps her position of Global Editorial Director. It has definitely been a challenging year for the conglomerate as well as for all the luxury market. There were layoffs in the first part of the year, due to the pandemic.
Anna Wintour needs no introduction
Anna Wintour is a British-American journalist and one of the most long-lasting editor in chief of a magazine in history. She definitely does not need any introduction, but you can easily recognize her by trademark: the pageboy bob haircut and the dark sunglasses. Anna Wintour is a very fine connoisseur of the upcoming fashion trends and she is one of the most important figures in the fashion and journalism world. She started her career early on, at 15 years old, when her father found her a job at Biba boutique, a high-end fashion store of the 1960s, located in London. After several jobs in New York and her hometown, Wintour became a fashion editor for Vogue in 1981 and then Editor-in-Chief in 1988. She was the first one to ever combine inexpensive clothing with upscale brands for a magazine cover, the one with Michaela Bercu. Published in November 1988, it was the very first magazine cover that had a model in jeans as a main photo.
Condé Nast is one of the biggest media conglomerates
Condé Nast is one of the biggest media conglomerates that coordinates and produces some of the world’s leading media, video, and social brands. Among them, we will mention only a few, and they are Vogue, The New Yorker, Vanity Fair, GQ, Condé Nast Traveler, and many more. The media company was founded in 1909 by Condé Montrose Nast, who bought a weekly society gazette named simply…Vogue. Since then, the brand has become much more than that and it represents now a benchmark of publishing quality.
