Conde Nast Names Phillips to Take Over Glamour From Wackermann
Conde Nast has named Connie Anne Phillips, the publisher of Time Inc.'s InStyle until last month, as VP-publisher of Glamour, one of the company's biggest brands. The move marks a return to Conde for Ms. Phillips, who had spent 14 years at Vogue before joining InStyle four years ago. She left Time Inc. in May, provoking rumors that she was on her way back to Conde.
"This is a homecoming for me -- I'm elated to reconnect with my friends and talented colleagues at Conde Nast, one of the most influential media companies in the world," Ms. Phillips said in a statement released by Conde Nast.
Ms. Phillips is taking over Glamour from Bill Wackermann, the exec VP-publishing director responsible for the title and previously Glamour's publisher since 2004. Conde Nast named Mr. Wackermann exec VP and publishing director at Conde Nast Traveler. That fills the opening created last week when Conde shifted Carolyn Kremins, who was VP-publisher at Traveler, to its Epicurious food site.
The company tried to install a new Glamour publisher beneath Mr. Wackermann in 2011, but changed its mind and returned direct responsibility for the brand to Mr. Wackermann after just three months.
Ms. Phillips' and Mr. Wackermann's appointments are effective July 8.
