Condé Nast Names Keija Minor as First Black Editor-in-Chief
Condé Nast Publications (CNP) has recently named Keija Minor editor-in-chief of Brides. This marks the first time in its 103-year history that a person of color has held that title at CNP.
Minor was promoted from her previous position of Brides executive director where she was responsible for day-to-day editorial operations and instrumental in developing the redesign of Brides.com, the Brides branded stationery lines and the Brides Live Wedding program, to be launched in November. Prior to that, she was editor-in-chief at UPTOWN Magazine.
“I am tremendously excited by this opportunity,” said Minor in a media advisory released by CNP. “It’s an honor to take the reins of such an iconic brand and to lead this extraordinarily talented team in bringing inspiring, innovative ideas to women at this pivotal and joyous moment in their lives.”
Condé Nast, which produces 22 business and consumer publications in the US alone, was founded in 1909. Its publications include Vogue, Vanity Fair and GQ. Brides has been published for nearly 80 years.
