The newly joined editor-in-chief of B magazine, Gina Johnson, has

reshuffled her editorial team as her first move since she arrived at the

title last month.



Sarah Maber, previously senior writer, has been promoted to features

editor. She replaces Jo Hawkins, who has joined Marie Claire as

commissioning editor. In the features team, Catherine O’Donnell moves up

to the position of senior writer, and Emma Elms becomes features

writer.



In the fashion department, Hilary Owens has been named as fashion

editor, moving up from her position as fashion stylist. Previously,

Nicola Rose, who has now joined Red, was fashion director, and Madeleine

Smith, who has gone freelance, was deputy fashion editor. Sally Dixon

has been made fashion assistant.



’We have a great team, they have a total understanding of the young

women’s market,’ said Johnson.



Johnson joined the Attic Futura-owned magazine in October (PR Week, 22

October) to replace Lorraine Butler, who left to join the Sunday Times

at the end of August. Johnson was previously based at Attic Futura’s

parent company, PMP Australia, where she was editorial director of B and

publisher of new projects.



B, which targets the young women’s magazine market, is the fastest

growing title in its sector, with monthly sales of 235,941.
