Luxury Travel Media re-structures team, unites print and digital

Luxury Travel Media has re-structured its editorial team, in an attempt to better integrate its print and digital teams.

The new team, led by executive editor and managing director, Gary Allen, will consist of current staff, who will work as a joint print and digital team.

The business is making sure it values its digital arm as much as print

Managing director, Richard Bunting, will remain in his role, while digital editor, Madelin Tomelty, has added features editor to her remit.

Kate Symons will work as contributing editor for the title, and is joined by Sally MacMillan, Kelly Allen and Steve Hui, who will work as cruise writer, health and well writer, and airlines and airport writer respectively.

“Like all print publishers, we recognise that publishing has changed immensely over the last decade and in the last few years digital content has become increasingly important,” Allen said.

“In order to keep our editorial aligned with our audience’s interests and content-consuming habits we have created an editorial structure that creates a more well-rounded media company, with an equal level of energy contributed to each of our editorial assets.

“As a small business, we have to be nimble and adaptable and this also goes for our team members. We believe all employees should embrace this philosophy and contribute to all aspects of our business, viewing both digital and print editorial as equally important. No employee is dedicated solely to print or digital at Luxury Travel Media but contributes to both.”

Luxury Travel Media’s changes follow the exit of editor Andrew Conway in December last year. Conway returned to the masthead after a 12 year hiatus as part of a restructure of editorial, marketing and digital.

He replaced Christine Kane, who was appointed as editor in November last year. Kane replaced Katie Milton, who held the role from April 2016 to November 2017. Other editors over the years have included Katrina Holden, from 2014 to 2016, and Lucy Jones who left in 2014 after two years as editor.
