Eckstein Jones has worked at Modern Luxury since 2013, across the Angeleno, Interiors California, Weddings California and Modern Luxury BH brands.
Angeleno is a nearly 20-year-old luxury lifestyle publication for the local, affluent Southern California audience. Eckstein Jones will direct Angeleno magazine’s editorial and work to expand its contributors.
“As I take on this new chapter as editor-in-chief, I hope to define L.A.'s unique personality through stories that explore the notable characters, ideas and places taking shape here right now,” Eckstein Jones stated.
Eckstein Jones “will also infuse more of her keen eye for interiors and design to the publication,” according to Modern Luxury. She succeeds Meg McGuire.
In addition, the company promoted Chris Gialanella to publisher of Modern Luxury’s Los Angeles Group, which includes Angeleno, LA Confidential and Modern Luxury BH, a joint venture with the Beverly Hills Chamber of Commerce.
Gialanella started his career at Angeleno in 2000.
In May, Modern Luxury promoted Lynn Scotti to group publisher for the New York region. She oversees all of the lifestyle publisher’s titles in New York, including Hamptons, Beach and Manhattan, as well as the new Gotham insert and digital property debuting in September.
Angeleno's September Fall Fashion issue features Emmy-nominated actress Rachel Brosnahan, star of Amazon series “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” and a spread shot at a Beverly Hills mansion.
Modern Luxury owns 84 titles in 24 markets in the United States.
