Gillen, who most recently served as managing editor for Condé Nast-owned Glamour since 2011, will start her new gig on Aug. 4 and report to Marie Claire editor in chief Anne Fulenwider.
The appointment marks a return for Gillen, who worked as managing editor for Marie Claire’s sister publication, Harper’s Bazaar, from 2006 to 2011.
Gillen fills the managing editor spot left open by Alexandra Brez, who has departed Hearst for Time Inc.’s People magazine.
Meanwhile, Hollywoodlife.com hired veteran US Weekly staff editor Carolyn Davis as its managing editor. The company also promoted senior reporter Emily Longeretta to news editor.
Both editors started their new jobs on Tuesday and are based out of the New York offices of Hollywood Life parent company Penske Media Corp.
