Never let it be said that the National Magazine Company is bitter
that Emap Elan managed to lure away Fiona McIntosh, editor of Company
The departure of McIntosh, who has been appointed editor of Elle, was
announced in a very polite press release from NatMags.
Under the headline, ’Emap pays heavy price for Company editor’, the
release proclaims McIntosh’s deal as the best package ever offered by
Emap. Terry Mansfield, managing director of NatMags, then enthuses about
McIntosh before launching into an attack on Conde Nast with ’it appears
Emap has an even bigger cheque book than Conde Nast whose managing
director spends most of his time outside NatMags offering cash and new
frocks to staff’.
Although it doesn’t mention whether any jobs are on offer, from what we
know of Conde Nast’s managing director, Nicholas Coleridge (pictured),
it really doesn’t sound like his style.
