Another day, another top-level editorial change at Condé Nast. On Wednesday, the company announced that Phillip Picardi has been named chief content officer at Teen Vogue, where he was previously the digital editorial director. Picardi will continue in his role as chief content officer at Them, as well.
"Phill [sic] is a fearless editor whose ability to inspire and lead cultural conversations of all kinds has connected deeply with Teen Vogue's influential and growing young audience," artistic director of Condé Nast and editor-in-chief of Vogue Anna Wintour said in a release.
Picardi, who joined Teen Vogue in 2015, helped expand the publication's digital presence to include politics, wellness and a range of social justice issues in addition to fashion and celebrity coverage. Teen Vogue also saw a traffic increase of 250 percent under Picardi's leadership, according to the release.
"[Picardi's] dynamic leadership has been transformative for Teen Vogue and has inspired his readers to become involved in so many issues of the day," said Wintour.
