Well what do you know, the rumors were true: Connie Anne Phillips is indeed returning to Condé Nast. Phillips has been named vice president and publisher of Glamour. Phillips was InStyle’s publisher for four years, but spent 14 years at Vogue.
Phillips will replace Bill Wackermann, who is headed to Condé Nast Traveler, where he’ll serve as executive vice president and publishing director. That’s a reunion as well, as Wackerman once served as Traveler’s associate publisher.
Charles Townsend, CEO of Condé, was excited about Phillips’ return to the company. In a statement, he said “With Connie Anne and editor-in-chief Cindi Leive at the helm, Glamour will be unstoppable.” Well damn.
Phillips and Wackermann’s appointments are both effective July 8.
