Promotion for the “Vogue” boss
US “Vogue” boss Anna Wintour (71) is promoted. The Condé Nast Verlag announced on Tuesday in a message in which the “new global content strategy” was presented. The company will redesign its creative processes in order to better serve the audience and advertising partners. “The restructuring will be led by Anna Wintour, who has been appointed chief content officer for the company worldwide,” it said.
“We will tell the inspiring stories of our time”
“Anna’s appointment marks a defining moment for Condé Nast as her ability to target new audiences while nurturing and mentoring some of the best talents in the industry has made her one of the greatest leaders in the media industry,” said Roger Lynch, CEO from Condé Nast, who will be Wintour’s immediate superior.
Anna Wintour does not stack deeply with her goals in the future job either. “As we look to the future of Condé Nast, we will use the unmatched combination of our global reach and local knowledge and identity of our titles to tell the most important and inspiring stories of our time.”
Anna Wintour ennobled by Queen Elizabeth II
Born in London, Anna Wintour has been editor-in-chief of the US “Vogue” since 1988 and since 2013 artistic director of Condé Nast in the USA. She was most recently appointed Global Content Advisor to Condé Nast in August 2019. She is also responsible for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Museum Costume Institute, for which she has raised more than $ 240 million.
The influential fashion expert has many honorable titles. Most recently, she was raised to the nobility in 2017 for her achievements in the fields of fashion and journalism by Queen Elizabeth II (94), when she was appointed Dame Commander (DBE) of the Order of the British Empire. In 2011 she was awarded the Order of Merit Légion d’Honneur by the then French President Nicolas Sarkozy (65). In October 2009, then US President Barack Obama (59) appointed Anna Wintour as a member of the President’s Committee on the Arts and Humanities.
