Multiple Editors-in-Chief Exit Modern Luxury Amid Staff Cuts

High-end regional magazine publisher Modern Luxury Media parted ways with several employees in a restructuring earlier this month, including at least seven editors-in-chief, Folio: has learned. Those who have exited the company since the start of July include the editors-in-chief at both San Francisco and Vegas magazines, as well as Modern Luxury-branded titles serving Houston, Chicago's North Shore, San Diego, Scottsdale and Silicon Valley, in addition to a managing editor working across both San Francisco and Modern Luxury Silicon Valley and the company's design director, who managed creative direction across the entire portfolio. As a result, some individual editors are now tasked with overseeing upwards of four different magazines in adjacent markets, according to multiple sources familiar with the situation, while others will rely heavily on content shared across multiple publications in the portfolio. In response to emailed questions last week, Modern Luxury Media's chief marketing officer, Raquel Cadourcy, acknowledged that the company has had to make "tough choices" as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, but confirmed that no magazines are shutting down and no changes will be made to the company's portfolio, which is currently comprised of 29 regional lifestyle magazines, in addition to a number of weddings- and interior design-focused offshoots. In April, the company furloughed an undisclosed number of employees across several departments through the end of June,... Continue reading at 'Folio Magazine'
