Victoria White lands position of editor of Company magazine

The National Magazine Company has appointed Victoria White as the editor of Company magazine.

White replaces Sam Baker, who announced in September that she was stepping down to pursue a writing career after five years in the job.

Company appointed White as the deputy editor in August 2000. She was previously the deputy editor at B magazine.

White takes on the post at a time when NatMags is increasing investment in the title. Earlier this year, it launched the spin-off title Shop!, which is expected to be published as a standalone newsstand title early next year.

Company, a young women's monthly, increased its circulation by 5.9 per cent during the first six months of 2003 to 330,617.

Justine Southall, the publishing director of Company, said: "Victoria has been instrumental in the current success of the magazine and I am confident that she has all the right qualities to carry on making Company the most exciting women's magazine in its market."

Baker is leaving Company after landing a two-novel deal with the publisher Orion. Earlier this year, she oversaw a revamp of the title when it shrank from British A4 to American A4, after the success of Glamour. She had agreed to continue in the editor's role until a replacement was appointed.
