Lagani new publisher at George mag

Post vacant before Kennedy's death

NEW YORK — Former Mademoiselle associate editor Daniel Lagani has been tapped publisher of George magazine.

The publisher’s post had been vacant even before the death of founder and editor-in-chief John F. Kennedy in July. Former Money magazine topper Frank Lalli was named Kennedy’s successor as editor-in-chief on Monday (Daily Variety, Nov. 30).

Before moving over to Mademoiselle, Lagani was associate publisher of Conde Nast Traveler and Primedia’s New Woman magazine.

Lagani will have his work cut out for him at George. At a time when magazine advertising revenues are up more than 12% overall from the previous year, according to Publishers Information Bureau, George’s year-to-date revenues have fallen 18.2%.

Lagani will report directly to Hachette Filipacchi Magazines CEO Jack Kliger.
