Major Changes Coming to InStyle and StyleWatch

A good day for Ariel Foxman. Not so much for Susan Kaufman

Time Inc. has made some major changes involving the InStyle and People StyleWatch leadership teams. For starters, Ariel Foxman — currently InStyle’s editor — has been promoted to editorial director of both brands, a new role at the company.

Foxman’s good news is bad news for StyleWatch founding editor Susan Kaufman; she is out. “We thank Susan for her service and contributions to StyleWatch and to Time Inc.,” said executive VP Evelyn Webster.

On the publishing side, InStyle’s publisher Nina Lawrence will now oversee StyleWatch, and Stephanie Sladkus, StyleWatch’s publisher, will report to Lawrence.
