Longtime Real Simple Editor Steps Down Amid Changes at Time Inc.

Kristin van Ogtrop joined the magazine in 2003


Another changing of the guard is afoot at Time Inc., where Real Simple's longtime editor in chief Kristin van Ogtrop announced today that she'll soon be stepping down from her post at the 16-year-old magazine.

Van Ogtrop joined Real Simple as editor in 2003, making her the longest-serving editor in chief at a Time Inc. title (with the exception of former American Express brands Departures and Food & Wine). "When I got here 13 years ago, Real Simple was hardly a brand—it was a print magazine that published 10 times a year," she told Adweek.
