Travel + Leisure’s new-ish editor in chief Nathan Lump circulated a memo Thursday about a trove of new hires.
Since Lump joined the Time Inc.-owned magazine in October, he has certainly shaken up the masthead. He brought in a new executive editor, style director, digital director and features director, among other positions. On Thursday, Lump said he has rounded out his team with newly appointed editor at large Maura Egan, who worked at T: The New York Times Magazine, from where Lump has already poached several staffers. The travel-centric magazine also added former Curbed national editor Amy Schellenbaum as digital editor, as well as former Condé Nast Traveller India editor Flora Stubbs, who joins as articles editor. New York Magazine’s Seen editor Thessaly LaForce will become T+L’s new senior editor, while Sean Flynn, a T+L freelance digital producer, will come aboard full time.
In his note to employees, Lump pointed to T+L’s relaunch with the May print issue and at TravelandLeisure.com in April as key dates that will show the future direction of the magazine.
