Another top level individual this time British Vogue’s Stephen Quinn is packing it in after 26 years. He will be retiring at the end of the year and there seems to be no rush if at all to replace him. Mr. Quinn’s retirement was announced by Conde Nast Britain’s managing director Albert Read. This adds to the recent top level resignations from Conde Nast in recent days. His resignation though not related (we think) comes as new Editor in Chief Edward Enninful settles in and readies his first issue. it also comes as Conde Nast is readying another round of restructuring that will see more role consolidation, layoffs and maybe even some publishing frequency cuts and print publications shuttering in favor of digital.
Said Mr. Quinn:
“It’s been a privilege to champion Vogue with intensity, passion and ferocity. I’ve relished every day in the office, every skirmish with an agency, every meeting with a client. I will leave Vogue in the strongest position possible and with a crack commercial team in place. 2018 will be my time, but first I’m looking forward to ensuring the December issue, the debut under the editorship of Edward Enninful, is a blockbuster from a commercial perspective, and will relish securing every possible business opportunity between now and the end of this year.”
