Bob Beauchamp to Retire

Bob Beauchamp, who has held positions at GQEsquire and most recently, Departures, is retiring. Beauchamp got his start in the magazine business when in 1976, GQ‘s Publisher, Sal Schiliro, brought him aboard.

“I didn’t have any experience, but Sal had this confidence that I could do the job,” Beauchamp told WWD. “I was a good dresser and had a certain taste level and had a reputation as a normal person without a big ego.” From there he went to Esquire, and in 1996 he joined Departures.

A party in his honor will be thrown by Departures next Tuesday at the Core Club.
