Playboy Publishing Leaving Chicago For LA

The writing was on the wall in April when Playboy editorial director and chief content officer Jimmy Jellinek moved to Los Angeles, but now it’s official — Hugh Hefner is relocating his Chicago-based publishing team to Los Angeles.

Playboy‘s editorial, art and photo departments will be based out of the company’s new Beverly Hills office by May 2012, according to Time Out Chicago.

“Some of the magazine’s Chicago employees have been asked to relocate, while others have been asked to stay on in Chicago to ensure a seamless transition,” Playboy spokeswoman Theresa Hennessey said Tuesday in a statement.
