Town & Country has named Erik Maza its style features director. Maza succeeds Whitney Robinson, who was appointed editor in chief of Elle Decor in June.
Maza, formerly a media reporter and Eye editor at WWD, comes to the Hearst title from Condé Nast, where he was the digital features director at W magazine. At W, he was charged with overseeing the tone of the web site, bringing in new contributors and launching new digital initiatives.
In his new role at Town&Country, Maza’s focus will be more on features than style.
Town & Country editor in chief Stellene Volandes lauded Maza’s “clever and thoughtful pairings of writer and assignment and impressive ability to see style the way we do at T&C, that is, everywhere — as long as you know where to look.”
“We talked about what we like in style features: joie de vivre, strong writing, timeless style, a little dish and a lot of fun,” Maza said. “That’s what I hope to bring to T&C’s pages, a mix that puts a premium on point of view, beautiful design, peerless service and exquisite writing from both established and emerging voices.”
