Amid reports that publishing giant Condé Nast is set to undergo a series of management changes — including Anna Wintour potentially stepping down as Editor-In-Chief at Vogue US – the chairman and chief executive of the company’s international operations has denied the rumors. Jonathan Newhouse has been rumored to replace the late Si Newhouse as the company’s overall chairman.
Speaking to Business of Fashion, Newhouse explained that he was staying in his current London-based position: “I am not moving back to New York and I do not plan to do so. I deny the statement that I am succeeding Si as Chairman. There are no plans for me to change my position.” Similarly, a spokesperson for Condé Nast also denied that Anna Wintour was set to step down from her two roles this summer, claiming that there was “zero truth to the story.”
