Editorial change at Harper's BAZAAR
ACP Magazines today announced that Edwina McCann has resigned as editor of Harper's BAZAAR.
Gerry Reynolds, ACP Publishing Director, said: "Edwina has given us great service over the past three years leading the Harper's BAZAAR team and building an exceptional title. We wish her well in her future career."
Ms McCann will remain in the editor's chair through the publication of the August issue of Harper's BAZAAR.
Mr Reynolds added that ACP had begun the search for Ms McCann's successor and would announce a new editor for the magazine in due course.
The transition period will be managed by ACP Magazines Asia Chief Executive Officer, Julie Sherborn, who has extensive experience editing and managing fashion and lifestyle publications in the region's booming economies.
Over the past 20 years she has successfully launched the Singapore and Malaysian editions of Harper's BAZAAR and Cosmopolitan, the Singapore edition of Elle as well as Asian editions of a range of ACP titles.
Ms Sherborn will be based in Sydney during the transition period and will report to the Harper's BAZAAR Publisher, Robyn Foyster.
