Condé Nast Traveler is shaking up its masthead amid the departure of its executive editor.

The travel-focused title said Peter Jon Lindberg has stepped down as executive editor. He will continue to contribute to the magazine, as he goes back to a freelance career. Lindberg was hired as executive editor last year. Prior to that, he served as a contributing international editor and senior correspondent. Those jobs followed a long stint at rival travel magazine Travel + Leisure, where Lindberg held the title of editor at large for almost 15 years.

Condé Nast Traveler deputy editor Candice Rainey will step into Lindberg’s spot as executive editor. Articles editor Lauren DeCarlo will grab the deputy editor title, as a result.

The magazine has added Alexandra Postman, former editor in chief of Whole Living, as features director. Postman is no stranger to CNT or Condé Nast. Most recently, she served as a contributing editor at the travel magazine, and before that she worked at sister glossy Self as deputy editor.

The editorial changes will take effect starting April 15.
