StyleWatch Editor Departing Mag

Lisa Arbetter is moving on.

Lisa Arbetter is moving on from her role as editor of StyleWatch. The mag’s executive editor, Bethany Heitman, will serve as interim editor until Arbetter’s successor is named.

Arbetter returned to StyleWatch last year after previously serving as its deputy editor. Before rejoining StyleWatch she served as InStyle’s deputy editor.

“In today’s evolving media landscape, being an editor fosters an entrepreneurial spirit,” Arbetter wrote, in an announcement obtained by WWD. “I have greatly enjoyed working with the StyleWatch team and expanding the brand into new territories, but the time has come for me to explore the idea of starting my own business.”
