Leigh-Belz-RayA source at The Lucky Group tells FishbowlNY that Leigh Belz Ray, who joined Lucky in August 2013, was just promoted from deputy editor to executive editor. Immediately before joining the shopping mag, Ray was the deputy editor at Time Inc’s People StyleWatch. She has also held editorial positions at Teen Vogue — working her way up from senior features editor to senior features director — and Elle, where she last held the title of associate editor.

The executive editor position at the magazine had been vacant since Deb Schwartz exited the role in 2013, when Brandon Holley was the top editor and the magazine was still under the Condé Nast umbrella.
