Well, that was fast.
Just hours after announcing that current EIC Joanna Coles would be moving to Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire has named her replacement.
Anne Fulenwider, who has been editor-in-chief of Brides since October 2011, will take the reins at Marie Claire. This is not the first time Fulenwider has worked with the Marie Claire team; prior to her role as EIC of Brides, Fulenwider worked for two years under Coles as executive editor of the mag.
Fulenwider says she is “thrilled” to be returning to Marie Claire, stating in a release: “I have such a strong attachment to the brand and what it delivers to the savvy, stylish women who read it. I look forward to contributing to its continued success on every front—from print to digital to television.”
No word yet if Fulenwider will also be as involved in the reality TV projects associated with Marie Claire as Coles was, but we look forward to seeing what direction the mag takes under her control. And now that there’s a position open at Brides, we expect more editorial announcements in the near future. Stand by…
