In internal memo at Bethesda Magazine today announced the hire of Cindy Rich, formerly of Washingtonian magazine. This is the second time the Maryland glossy has hired a Washingtonian alum this year; in May, former Washingtonian senior editor Mary Clare Glover went there to replace editor Lisa Shroder.
Here’s the internal email from Glover that was sent to staff today announcing Rich’s hiring:
Steve and I are very excited to announce that we have hired Cindy Rich as a senior editor. For the past three years, Cindy has been director of communications at the National Center for Children and Families, a Bethesda-based nonprofit. Before that, Cindy was a senior writer for Washingtonian magazine, where she wrote in-depth stories about such topics as health, children, families and crime. Her writing has won multiple awards from the Society of Professional Journalists and was also named in the Best American Essays anthology and recognized by the Easter Seals.
At Bethesda Magazine, Cindy will edit the Health section of the magazine, among other stories, and will also write long-form features and oversee the Welcome Guide. A Kensington native, Cindy knows the Bethesda area well. She and her husband, Chris, a Montgomery County Public Schools teacher, live in Rockville with their daughter. She will start August 4.
