livingcover.jpgMartha Stewart Living Omnimedia (MSLO) has reached from within its ranks to fill the top slot at its flagship magazine, Martha Stewart Living.

On Friday, the company announced that Vanessa Holden, the editor-in-chief of Martha Stewart Weddings, had been promoted to the same position at Living. Katie Hatch, Weddings‘ style director, will replace Holden at the bridal title. Meanwhile, Gael Towey, who was working as acting editor of Living was named editorial director at MSLO. Towey MSLO’s former chief creative officer, stepped into the role in February when Michael Boodro left the company.

Holden joined MSLO as Weddings‘ editor-in-chief in August 2008 from her own consulting business. She previously worked as creative director at Real Simple magazine and co-founded food and lifestyle magazine Donna Hay. She has also worked at the Australian versions of Marie Claire and Marie Claire Lifestyle as well as Vogue Entertaining and Travel and Vogue Living.

New Weddings editor Hatch is a former lawyer and freelancer who has worked at Living and the now-defunct MSLO title Blueprint. She was named associate style editor at Weddings in 2000.
