W’s masthead got another shake-up this week: Armand Limnander, previously the magazine’s fashion news and features director, has been promoted to deputy editor, overseeing all written content for the magazine. His appointment comes just as Ted Moncreiff, the magazine’s current executive editor, announced that he’ll depart at the end of the year to “pursue personal projects,” according to WWD (he’s staying to finish W’s 40th anniversary book and iPad app, which won’t be done until December, apparently). Also departing are senior articles editor Jenny Comita and design director Joseph Logan, according to Limnander, who spoke with us on the phone this morning.
Meanwhile, Maura Egan started her new post as features director on Monday; she previously worked with Limnander and Stefano Tonchi at T. Also, former senior editor Diane Solway has been promoted to arts and culture editor. Limnander said that the magazine, which has gone through a number of changes since Tonchi took over, finally feels settled. “In the past few months it seems like we really have found a strong voice,” he said. “The September issue is really the template for how the magazine will look moving forward.”
