Irish journalist and broadcaster Anne-Marie Tomchak has been appointed Digital Director of British Vogue. The role, which was created especially for her, gives her responsibility for editorial content across all of the fashion magazine’s online platforms.
Tomchak will report to Edward Enninful, British Vogue’s editor-in-chief, and Simon Gresham Jones, chief digital officer at Condé Nast Britain, the magazine’s publisher.
Another Irishwoman, Tomchak’s friend Samantha Barry, who is editor-in-chief of Glamour magazine’s US edition applauded her saying: “She’s a fantastic journalist”, “ a huge talent” and a “brilliant hire”, Barry posted the below on Instagram.
Tomchak was the former UK editor of the digital media site Mashable, where she oversaw many stories that went viral, including a record-breaking 1.3 million visitors on Apple News in a single day.
She also launched BBC Trending, the British broadcaster’s social-media investigative unit. We wish Anne-Marie all the very best in her new role!
