When Connie Anne Phillips returned to Condé Nast to serve as Glamour’s publisher and chief revenue officer, it was a homecoming of sorts. After a 14-year career at Vogue, Phillips left Condé for a four-year stint at InStyle before rejoining in 2013 to assume the top sales position at Glamour. She didn’t have long to settle in before the office moved downtown to One World Trade Center. With a new blank canvas, Phillips was meticulous and thoughtful in curating a space that would make her feel happy.
“The idea was to create a chic space with a sense of happiness and warmth,” she said. “I wanted to look around the office and see things that make me happy, such as the trunk, a picture of my sister’s French bulldog, my nephew and my favorite note from my dad. It’s about creating an environment where you feel your best so you can do your best work.”
