He will continue to be based at the publication’s Atlanta office. Partilla, who joined the periodical in January as Eastern advertising director in New York, will continue to work from that location. SL publisher Rich Smyth will relocate from the New York office to the company’s Birmingham, Ala., headquarters this summer.
