Hearst Magazines has promoted Lucy Kaylin to the title of editorial director, effective immediately. Previously, Kaylin was senior vice president of content for Hearst.
The news was announced on Thursday by Steven R. Swartz, Hearst president and chief executive officer, and Debi Chirichella, president of Hearst Magazines, to whom Kaylin will report.
The news comes as Kate Lewis has decided to step down as chief content officer after almost 10 years with Hearst.
Kaylin joined Hearst in 2007 as executive editor of Marie Claire, a property now owned by Future.
In addition, Kaylin has served as editor-in-chief of The Oprah Magazine (akaO), moving up from the post of deputy editor. She began her career at Vogue, then spent nearly two decades at GQ.
“Lucy has established herself as a creative and collaborative leader,” Chirichella says. “She will play a pivotal role in our evolution as we deepen our focus on innovation, identify new ways to engage our audience and build a business model that drives long-term consumer revenue growth.”
