Kate Reardon resigns her role as Editor of Tatler

Kate Reardon: "It really has been a joy."

Under Kate’s editorship, says Condé Nast, Tatler has been uniquely joyful and uplifting. It has captured the zeitgeist, cleverly charting the influx of new wealth and shifts in aristocratic fortunes. The magazine has also tackled many important issues on domestic abuse and championing gay women. In 2014, BBC2 broadcast a 3-part documentary, Posh People, Inside Tatler, featuring Kate and other staff members: the documentary has now been viewed by an audience approaching 7 million. Other innovative developments of the brand under Kate’s leadership include successful B2C events as well as the annual and much-anticipated Schools Guide and Awards, all of which have capitalised on Tatler’s authority in the education sector. Kate has also steered Tatler into the digital age, growing unique users and page views tenfold and tripling its following on social media channels.

Nicholas Coleridge, Chairman of Condé Nast Britain, remarked “Kate has been a first class Editor of Tatler, producing a magazine of wit, mischief and glamour. She has an instinctive understanding of her readers, you feel her personality on every page.”

Kate Reardon commented “I’ve had the time of my life and will be forever grateful to Jonathan Newhouse for the extraordinary experience of being a Condé Nast editor. I’ve also had the immense good fortune to work with some mind-blowingly talented, hard-working and funny people, it really has been a joy. I will share the news of my new venture when it’s appropriate.”

Kate Reardon is one of Britain’s most experienced magazine editors. She began her career as a 19-year-old fashion assistant at American Vogue, and at 21 was made the Fashion Director of Tatler – the youngest ever at Condé Nast. Kate was a founding advisory board member of Net-a-Porter.com, has written three separate columns for The Times, who named her one of Britain’s best writers, and spent a decade as a Contributing Editor at Vanity Fair. In 2007 Kate founded the women’s community site, TopTips.com. The business, which was well ahead of its time with a user generated content model, was a multi-platform success - generating a column in the Daily Mail, a weekly slot on ITV breakfast television and two bestselling books. In 2011, she returned to Tatler as Editor.

Deputy Editor, Gavanndra Hodge, will oversee the title in the interim and a successor will be announced in the New Year.
