The Cut Adds Mikki Halpin and Izzy Grinspan

Two great hires.

This morning we noted that Mikki Halpin, Refinery29’s talented editorial director, had left the company after only roughly 10 months. Now we know where she was headed: New York’s The Cut.

Halpin will serve as deputy editorial director; a right-hand woman to editorial director Stella Bugbee.

Also joining Halpin at The Cut is Izzy Grinspan, who has been named a senior editor. She comes to the site from Racked, where she most recently served as executive editor.

Halpin will join The Cut August 3; Grinspan August 23.
