Anna Wintour has added another job title to her ever-growing list of duties at Conde Nast.
In addition to being the media company’s artistic director and longtime editor-in-chief of Vogue U.S., she’s now become global content adviser, and will directly oversee the online hub, Vogue International.
The “new global leadership structure” reshuffle by new Conde Nast chief executive Roger Lynch means Wintour will now advise executives on global content opportunities, and will also act “as a resource to editors-in-chief and editorial talent worldwide,” according to a press release.
There were rumours that the 69-year-old Brit would be leaving Conde Nast last year, forcing previous chief executive Bob Sauerberg to release a statement insisting that Wintour would be staying with the company “indefinitely.”
“Anna Wintour is an incredibly talented and creative leader whose influence is beyond measure,” Sauerberg told WWD in 2018. “She is integral to the future of our company’s transformation and has agreed to work with me indefinitely in her role as editor in chief, Vogue and artistic director of Conde Nast.”
It was rumoured that the iconic editor would relinquish one of her roles by the end of last year, after Sauerberg left Conde Nast, with British Vogue editor-in-chief Edward Enninful reportedly heading to America to be Wintour’s replacement.
At the time, a spokeswoman for British Vogue said the rumours were “categorically false.”
