Editors-in-chief are on the move at Condé Nast and Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia (MSLO), as both media brands announced top-level shakeups.
Condé Nast Traveler’s new editor-in-chief Pilar Guzmán comes to the company after serving as vice president and editor-in-chief of MSLO’s flagship publication Martha Stewart Living since March 2011.
Guzmán, who returns to Condé Nast after her stay as editor-in-chief of its since-shuttered parenting magazine, Cookie, from 2005 to 2009, will take over the post from current editor-in-chief Klara Glowczewska who is leaving, effective Sept. 3, 2013.
“With her charismatic style, digital savvy and exceptional taste, she has a unique sensibility for what resonates with audiences,” says Condé Nast president Robert Sauerberg, Jr., in a statement.
Guzmán’s replacement at MSLO will be current Martha Stewart Living editorial and brand director Eric Pike, the company announced Wednesday. Pike joined MSLO in 1992 as an associate art director for the magazine and will assume all duties of editor-in-chief for the publication effective immediately.
“Eric has worked with me for over 20 years and has been instrumental in the development of the Martha Stewart brand,” says MSLO founder and CCO Martha Stewart, in a statement.
