Scott Dadich has been named the new editor-in-chief of Wired. This marks a return to Wired for Dadich, who served as the magazine’s creative director from 2006 to 2010. During his time there Wired won three straight NMA’s for Design. Dadich most recently served as Condé Nast’s vice president of editorial platforms.
“Scott has been at the forefront of the company’s digital innovation for the past three years, developing the design for a digital magazine that has become an industry standard,” said Condé’s editorial director, Tom Wallace, in a statement. “His return to Wired, where he served as creative director and won three National Magazine Awards for Design, will ensure that it continues its pace-setting growth.”
“I’m excited to return to Wired, which has had such a tremendous impact on my life and my career,” Dadich said, in a statement. “I’m honored to have the chance to build on the legacy of innovation that Louis and Jane started some 20 years ago. And I am grateful to my friend and colleague Chris and the incredible Wired staff. I look forward to finding new opportunities to delight and surprise the Wired community, both with the stories we tell and in the ways in which we tell them.”
Dadich succeeds Chris Anderson, who left to dedicate more time to his robotics company.
