Camilla Newman named Publishing Director of Glamour, and Simon Leadsford to become Publishing Director of Brides.
Nicholas Coleridge commented: “Camilla has shown great commercial tenacity during her time with Britain’s biggest selling bridal brand. Her industry relationships demonstrate the high regard she is held in, and the success of the Brides business is testament to her talent. Energetic and enthusiastic, this promotion is well-deserved. She is the ideal publisher to continue Glamour’s success.”
“Simon has demonstrated he is a top rate publisher and operator over two decades. His previous experience in the bridal sector, together with his varied and impressive resumé, will ensure a smooth and steady transition. The Brides business will be in capable hands,” added Coleridge.
On her appointment Newman commented, “As an avid reader of Glamour since its launch I couldn’t be more thrilled to be joining this brand at such an exciting juncture in its evolution. A new larger format, a slick digital offering with significant social platform reach, plus live events, and all under the brilliant editorship of Jo Elvin; I can’t wait to get started. Following a happy and fruitful commercial career at Brides I’m now ready for this fresh challenge.”
Leadsford remarked “I’m very excited at the prospect of driving forward two market leading titles. Brides is at the top of its game, having demonstrated considerable success both success both in attracting new advertisers and in the creation of new live experiences. Traveller has seen significant growth across its digital and print platforms as well as the introduction of a new events programme last year. I look forward to steering both brands into the next stage of their evolution.”
Leadsford will be adding this responsibility to his existing role as Publishing Director of Condé Nast Traveller.
