Folio Top Women: Anne Sachs
Senior Online Editorial Director, Glamour Magazine
Anne Sachs has overseen Glamour’s digital editorial team for seven years, and in that time, the Glamour.com website has grown to 8.5 million monthly uniques, with particularly terrific growth on mobile platforms. Additionally, Glamour has grown to 10 million fans and followers via social media under her leadership. Sachs has been instrumental in building Glamour’s video presence, particularly in helping to conceptualize the ASME-winning documentary series Screw You Cancer.
Sachs also has a great mind for editorial-from astute story selection to crafting compelling headline language to striking the right balance between being informative, being interesting, and being funny. Other editors joke that when they’re trying to figure out how to package a story they just ask themselves, "How would Anne say it?" Moreover, she is a generous mentor-Sachs has become one of Condé Nast’s go-to sources of digital expertise, providing SEO coaching to various web editors within the company, as well as taking the time to share her wisdom with students at Columbia, NYU and young journalists through ASME Next.
