The ascension of Condé Nast president Bob Sauerberg to be in charge of all revenue generation activities means that Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour has seen off all of her rivals for control of editorial at the company as creative director. According to a story in Crain's New York Business,
Editorial Director Tom Wallace will leave the company. Though he is not being replaced, his job was considered redundant after Ms. Wintour was named creative director last year. John Bellando, a 15-year veteran who was both chief financial officer and chief operating officer, is also leaving the company, to be replaced by an executive from Time Inc....
"Anna really has more power than Bob and Chuck [CEO] combined," said the former executive. "She's the person everyone sees as a visionary and as having a huge amount of influence inside and outside of the building."
