Another African, Vanessa Kingori named as new Publishing Director for British Vogue
By Sewe Ishola,
It’s starting to look like an African takeover at British Vogue as Vanessa Kingori, who is of Kenyan and Caribbean heritage has been confirmed as the new Publishing Director for the publication.
This is coming months after Edward Enninful, who is of Ghanaian origins took over as Editor-in-chief of British Vogue in August 2017.
Before this latest gig, which she will start on December 23rd, Vanessa has worked her way through the Conde Nast media empire in both GQ Style and British GQ.
Speaking about her, Condé Nast Managing Director, Albert Read said;
“[She was] instrumental in doubling digital revenue with the relaunched and very successful mobile first GQ web site, Vanessa oversaw the highest total annual revenue for GQ in the last decade. With Vogue entering its new era, Vanessa is the clear choice for this post. She has shown herself to be an outstanding executive, with an ability to harness the continuing power of print while embracing the platforms, ideas and collaborations that resonate with a new generation of consumer and client.”
