Melinda Stevens appointed Condé Nast Traveller editor

Condé Nast Traveller’s founding editor Sarah Miller will be replaced by Tatler travel editor Melinda Stevens later this month.

Stevens began her career at Vogue after finishing runner-up in the Vogue Talent Competition, later becoming features editor of Tatler and as a journalist and columnist for The Sunday Times, The Daily Mail, The Evening Standard, and Style Magazine.

She also worked on the launch of the website PeopleNews.com. She will take up role on 25 May when Miller steps down.

Commenting on her departure, the managing director of Condé Nast Britain and President of Condé Nast International, Nicholas Coleridge, said: ‘Sarah’s contribution to the title, which was the first overseas edition of Traveller outside America, has been pivotal, and during her editorship the magazine quickly came to be regarded as the foremost travel title in the market, with a strong commitment to culture, design and fashion as well as the leading authority on travel.

‘Its supplements, City Guides and iPhone apps are widely regarded as well as its various awards programmes for the travel industry – the annual Hot List, Gold List, Readers Awards and Spa Awards, as well as the Condé Nast Traveller/Marriott Innovation & Design Awards – have become amongst the most important accolades in the industry.

‘Sarah ran Condé Nast Traveller with dedication and passion, and we will always be grateful to her for her superb stewardship of the magazine.”

The most recent ABC figures show circulation of the paper was down 1.3 per cent to 80,059.
