Marie Claire Promotes Deputy Editor

Abigail-Pesta-Portrait-new-sm.jpgAbigail Pesta has been named editor-at-large of Marie Claire, one of Hearst Corporation‘s women’s titles. Pesta had previously been deputy editor at the glossy, after a switch from Glamour magazine, where she also served in an editorial capacity.

Pesta was smart to make the move, as Glamour is owned by Condé Nast, which has delivered so many cutbacks recently that they barely have any staff left to promote. And while Hearst has had to make some concessions last year and earlier this year (cutting Good Housekeeping staffers, cutting back permalancers, and the folding of CosmoGirl), it has saved the publisher from any big losses so far this year, at least in comparison to many of its competitors.

Pesta’s new role will involve “additional writing and traveling for the magazine,” which sounds like a pretty stellar way to make a living, if you ask us.
