Jane Francisco Named Editor-in-Chief of Good Housekeeping

Jane Francisco has been named editor-in-chief of Good Housekeeping. Francisco comes to the magazine from Chatelaine, a women’s lifestyle magazine in Canada. Francisco had served as its editor-in-chief since 2009. Prior to that, she served as Style at Home’s editor-in-chief.

“Jane is an incredibly versatile editor, leader and branding expert, with the experience and vision to build on the lively, friendly energy of the revamped Good Housekeeping,” said Hearst Magazines president, David Carey, in a statement.

Francisco is succeeding Rosemary Ellis, who — according to a release — is leaving Hearst to “pursue new opportunities.” “We thank Rosemary for the work she has done stewarding this brand, one of the most respected in the media industry,” said Carey.

Francisco first day at Good Housekeeping is December 2.
