Elle Decor today announced that it has made Michael Boodro editor in chief of the Hachette Filipacchi shelter title. He assumes his new role on Wednesday.
Boodro’s getting bumped up from the executive editor spot, a role he re-assumed in 2009 after a few stopovers at Martha Stewart Living and Culture & Travel. He has also worked for HG Magazine, Harper’s Bazaar and GQ, among other publications.
â€œMichael and this team are the foundation of the magazine and have been integral to propelling Elle Decor to the number one title in the category,” said Elle Group senior vice president and chief brand officer Robin Domeniconi in a statement. “We are confident the magazine will continue to flourish under their vision and leadership.”
There are a couple of other Decor folks changing seats. Anita Sarsidi has been promoted to design director, Florentino Pamintuan is now creative director, and Vicky Lowry will take over as executive editor.
