Pilar Guzmán Brings Changes to Condé Nast Traveler

Pilar Guzmán has only been editor-in-chief of Condé Nast Traveler for a little over a week, but she’s already making her mark on the glossy. On Friday, she dismissed longtime managing editor Dee Aldrich and veteran photo editor Kathleen Klech. The New York Post is reporting that  Guzmán dropped Mike Connolly, Traveler’s style director, as well.

With three staffers gone, Guzmán turned to her old haunt — Martha Stewart Living — for new blood. Guzmán has hired Yolanda Edwards to be Traveler’s creative director.

What can readers expect from Traveler going forward? Guzmán told the Post that “We want to see more joy on the pages.” Traveler subscribers should prepare for whatever the hell that means.
