Vanessa Kingori Is the First Black Publisher of Vogue Magazine

Vanessa Kingori is the new publisher of British Vogue. She'll take over in December.

Kingori, a Briton of Kenyan and Caribbean origin, was previously publisher at GQ Style and British GQ. When she arrived at British GQ, she became the first Black publisher in Conde Nast history. While there,  she oversaw the highest total annual revenue for the brand in the last decade. She was also the first female for the magazine 30-year history.
Kingori has also worked at Esquire and the Evening Standard’s ES Magazine.

She'll work alongside Edward Enniful who is the first Black editor-in-chief of British Vogue.

“In a moment when continuous change across the communications, fashion and luxury industries creates dynamic and exhilarating opportunities for the strongest media brands, Vogue’s unrivaled equity sets it apart as the best of the best,” said Kingori. “To be tasked with setting and leading commercial strategy across the British Vogue brand while Edward [Enninful] debuts his vision for the next chapter is truly an honour,” she added.
