Kate Lanphear Named Editor of Maxim

maxim logo GKate Lanphear — yes, a woman — has been named the new editor-in-chief of Maxim. Lanphear comes to the magazine from T: The New York Times Style Magazine, where she served as style director. Prior to her time at T, Lanphear served as Elle’s style director for four years.

The decision to hire Lanphear to run the most dude bro magazine of all time is interesting, to say the least. According to WWD, during her time at Elle, Lanphear “became a recognizable street style star.” What does that mean for Maxim? Well, we’re not quite sure, since we’re not really clear on what a “street style star” is or does. However! WWD makes it sound important, so perhaps Lanphear is going to try and class the joint up a bit.

This is just the latest noteworthy addition to the glossy since Sardar Biglari purchased it in March. In July, Kevin Martinez left Details to join Maxim as its publisher.

Is Maxim as we know it dead? And what will the new Maxim look like? Keep an eye out for its March issue. That will be the first one under Lanphear’s leadership.

Details Taps New Publisher

You can’t win them all.

DrewSchutteLinkedInAs we reported last month, WWD summarized the rumor mill of names being mentioned for the vacant Details publisher slot. Nowhere in that summary was the individual today disclosed. From Keith J. Kelly‘s report:

Condé Nast on Monday chose a Web-focused executive from its ranks as the new publisher at Details — signalling it wants to jump start the title’s nascent digital efforts.

Drew Schutte, a former publisher of Wired and The New Yorker, who was most recently executive vice president and chief integration officer at the publishing giant, replaces Kevin Martinez, who was lured to Maxim a month ago.

Condé Searches for Next Details Publisher

Condé Nast is on the hunt for the next publisher of Details, so why not stir the rumor mill? According to WWD, there are a few people being considered to fill the role left by Kevin Martinez earlier this month. Martinez, Details’ publisher since 2011, left to join Maxim.

Here’s the list of possible Martinez replacements:

Of those, Wagenheim is the least likely to take over Details. Why? Because he flat out told WWD “It’s not happening.” Hey, calm down buddy. We’re talking about you getting a new job, not getting fired.

As for the rest of them, feel free to speculate about their future roles at your leisure.

Kevin Martinez Leaves Details for Maxim

kevin martinez GKevin Martinez has left Details behind and joined Maxim as its new publisher.

Making this move a little bit more interesting is the report from The New York Post that Martinez “was abruptly booted from the Condé Nast headquarters” after he said he was departing Details.

Martinez has been with Details since 2011, when he joined as VP and publisher. Prior to that, he served as Elle’s VP and brand publisher.

Martinez previously held roles at Esquire and Harper’s Bazaar.

Details Adds Publisher

As we expected, Sabine Feldmann, who was edged out as Publisher of Teen Vogue this morning, won’t be joining Details. Instead, Kevin Martinez has joined the magazine as Vice President, Publisher.

Martinez has been serving as a consultant to Details since the summer, and before that was Vice President, Brand Publisher at Elle.

“Over the past five months we’ve made great strides in the print, digital and social areas of the brand,” said Martinez. “I am thrilled to be able to build on that success with Dan Peres and the entire Details team.”
