- Juliet Warkentin, the editor of IPC Magazines' Marie-Claire, is quitting to become managing director of the marketing and home shopping division of the retail group, Arcadia.

Warkentin replaces Robin Klein at the UK's second largest clothing retailer, whose brands include Top Shop, Evans, Racing Green and Principles. Klein has taken on a new role as non executive chairman of Dial, the Arcadia joint venture with Littlewoods.

Warkentin, who will join Arcadia in January, commented: "It really wasn't a decision about Marie-Claire, but it was one about my career. It was an incredible opportunity and one I couldn't turn down."

She added that it was unlikely that she would return to editing in the future because: "It's impossible to do anything after Marie-Claire."

Warkentin joined Marie-Claire in 1996 from the fashion business title Draper's Record, where she was editor for three years.

Rita Lewis, publishing director of IPC Southbank, said no decision had been taken yet on Warkentin's replacement. She added: "I don't think that we are looking at dramatic changes to the magazine. It is selling incredibly well which is where the final test is. With a new editor on board, it's an opportunity to look at it again."

Marie-Claire, which celebrated its tenth birthday in September, is the third largest mainstream women's monthly title with circulation of 416,239.
