Anna Wintour obtains additional job at Condé Nast
In a series of significant changes at Condé Nast, Dame Anna Wintour, the editor in chief of Vogue, has also been named “Global Content Advisor” for the company’s international brands.
The new role gives her more authority over Vogue’s International Brands and places her in an advisory role to Condé Nast's other overseas magazines. As well as advising executives on global content opportunities, she will also act "as a resource to editors-in-chief and editorial talent worldwide" according to the announcement's press release.
Wintour's promotion is the direct result of CEO Roger Lynch's new global leadership team, a repercussion of 2018's merging of Condé Nast and Condé Nast International into one entity. In addition to Wintour's new appointment, Condé Nast's global content team will also include Oren Katzeff, the president of Condé Nast Entertainment, and The New Yorker Editor-in-Chief David Remnick.
CEO Roger Lynch has said: "One of my top priorities has been to define our organisational structure so that we can take full advantage of our unique growth opportunities and exceptional content around the world."
Condé Nast added that it is "still in search mode for executives to oversee on a global level the functions of people, finance and communications".
