Daniela Falcão named managing director of Edições Globo Condé Nast
Edições Globo Condé Nast is the joint venture between Condé Nast and media company Globo, which has published Vogue Brazil since 2010. The organisation also publishes Brazilian editions of Gentlemen’s Quarterly, Glamour and Casa Vogue. Falcão was named Editor of Vogue in 2005 and added the responsibilities of editorial director of the company earlier this year.
“Daniela is a brilliant Editor with a deep commitment to excellence and a keen understanding of the market. She is a superb choice to lead the company in the future,” said Newhouse.
As editor-in-chief Falcão is credited with elevating the editorial voice of the magazine and bringing in top talent as contributors, such as the photographers Mario Testino, Patrick Demarchelier, Giampaolo Sgura, Ellen von Unwerth and the team of Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. She took on creative leadership of the company’s websites, among the most popular in the market, expanding the brand into events and other activities.
After becoming Editorial Director of the company this year, she added responsibility for the entire portfolio of brands to her position as Vogue Editor-in-Chief. A key area of focus was to drive the brands across a multi-platform strategy.
It is also announced today that Silvia Rogar, current deputy editor of Vogue, will be promoted to editor-in-chief from January 2017.
Vogue Brazil launched in 1975 and was soon followed by Casa Vogue. GQ was launched in 2011 and Glamour in 2012.
