Elle Décor's Executive Editor Michael Boodro has been promoted to Editor-in-Chief of the magazine, effective this week— replacing Margaret Russell, who will start her new role as Editor-in-Chief of Architectural Digest September 7.
The magazine will also retain its core editorial team led by Anita Sarsidi, Florentino Pamintuan and Vicky Lowry. In addition to Boodro’s promotion, Anita Sarsidi has been promoted to Design Director and Florentino Pamintuan has been elevated to Creative Director. Vicky Lowry will assume the Executive Editor title at the magazine.
Boodro has been responsible for overseeing Elle Décor's editorial content since he re-joined the magazine in April 2009—he held the same position in 2005. He has served as Editor-in-Chief of Martha Stewart Living, Culture & Travel, and has held posts at The New York Times Magazine, Garden Design, and Vogue. He also has written for House Beautiful, Town & Country, Country Living, and Organic Style.
