Good Housekeeping publishing director Simon Kippin has resigned and

is to leave at the end of the month after 15 years with the National

Magazine Company.



Kippin, who does not have any job plans, has been at Good Housekeeping

for two-and-a-half years and was previously publishing director at

Cosmopolitan for eight-and-a-half years. He has also been publisher of

Company.



NatMags’ deputy managing director Duncan Edwards will interview internal

and external candidates for the job. But the speed of the move appears

to have caught NatMags executives by surprise. At the end of last week,

Edwards did not have an interim strategy in place.



Kippin said: ’I want to look at other opportunities and couldn’t do that

while I was 100 per cent devoted to Good Housekeeping. I have had a

terrific 15 years at NatMags and Terry Mansfield has kindly agreed to

release me from my contract early.’
