Bauer Media announced major changes to its homes category on Friday. The restructure means the publisher is losing another long-time editor – Lisa Green (pictured).
Replacing Green is Tanya Buchanan, previously editor at Belle, who has been appointed editor of Australian House & Garden. Buchanan has spent more than 11 years at Belle and has more than 20 years’ experience in the publishing industry.
Bauer Media has appointed Gavin Kirk as editor of Belle. Kirk joins the publisher after close to eight years at Pacific Magazines, most recently as the associate editor of Home Beautiful.
With a degree in interior architecture and significant cross platform publishing experience, Bauer said Kirk brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience in the homes, luxury and lifestyle media sectors.
Paul Dykzeul, CEO, Bauer Media said, “Bauer Media remains committed to bolstering its team with exceptional talent to further propel the growth of all of our brands. I am thrilled to welcome Gavin Kirk to the fold as the new editor of Belle.”
Commenting on Buchanan’s promotion, Dykzeul said, “Tanya has been a very successful editor and has made a significant contribution to the success of Belle. I am excited to see Tanya take the helm of Australian House & Garden and take her passion and love of the Australian homes category to the magazine.”
Bauer Media will bid farewell to Lisa Green at the end of April.
Throughout a 14-year career at Bauer Media, Green has made significant contributions to a number of titles within the homes category.
Australian House & Garden is the fourth most-read monthly magazine in Australia and has won numerous industry awards.
Dykzeul said: “It has been a pleasure to work with Lisa Green on Australian House & Garden. We thank her for her contribution to Bauer and wish her all the success in her future endeavours.”
