Revolving Door

Men’s Journal Publisher Out After One Year

The New York Post reports that Vincent Krsulich is out as publisher of Men’s Journal after only one year in the role. Krsulich had been with the magazine since 2008. He served as associate publisher for five years before being promoted.

Krsulich’s departure means yet another publisher for Men’s Journal, which has seen quite a few over the past six years.

Since 2008, Men’s Journal has had five different people fill that role: Fran Farrell (2008-2009), Matt Mastrangelo (2009-2010), Michael Wolfe (2010-2012), Chris McLoughlin (Jan. 2012-Aug. 2013) and Kruslich.

The next person offered the job might want to consider that history first.
