Eliot Kaplan has been named Executive Director, Talent Acquisition, at Hearst Magazines. Kaplan most recently worked as Editorial Talent Director for Hearst, a position he held since 1999.

Kaplan has had quite the career in magazines, including his time at Hearst. He elevated GQ into a well-respected brand serving under its Editor-in-Chief Art Cooper. Then, for seven years he was Editor-in-Chief at Philadelphia Magazine, and during that time the title was nominated five times for National Magazine Awards and won twice.

FishbowlNY wishes Kaplan the best at his new position, even though we hear he’s a big Phillies fan.
