Recently departed Pacific general manager, fashion, beauty and health, Jackie Frank has started work in New York this week on a top secret project for Hearst, the home of many brands including marie claire, Harper’s Bazaar and Elle in the USA.
Speaking to Mediaweek shortly after landing in the Big Apple, Frank said: “I was asked to do a freelance project for Hearst in the US. I am doing consultancy work, under my new company Be Frank Group.
“It’s wonderful to be back in New York after so many years – the city is so full of life and inspiring!”
Mediaweek recently covered Frank’s last day at Pacific after guiding marie claire and other titles for 23 years:
A farewell letter from her colleagues at Pacific described Jackie Frank as everything from passionate publisher, TV titan, fierce fashionista to relentless networker, office screamer, public crier, amazing mentor and badass boss.
Later in the afternoon there was a formal send-off around 4pm with all the Pacific teams assembling from the magazines that Frank was general manager of – the titles that sit within the fashion, beauty and health division.
There were quite a few tears as speakers included marie claire’s Nicky Briger and Better Homes & Gardens’ Julia Zaetta as well as a few words too from Frank.
