Tom Florio's Post-Conde Nast Plans; Why Carol Smith Likely Can't Take Over — Yet

Tom Florio's Post-Conde Nast Plans; Why Carol Smith Likely Can't Take Over — Yet

>> Tom Florio, according to insiders, was almost out of a job at Conde Nast late last year, but yesterday, he decided to leave on his own terms and the parting seems to be amicable.

Florio, who leaves Conde Nast as SVP and publishing director, overseeing Vogue, Teen Vogue, Bon Appetit, and Conde Nast Traveler, at the end of this month after 25 years, told WWD: “I’m just in a position to do something else. It could be in TV; it could be on many platforms. It also could be that I will be working closely with Condé Nast. We’ll see.”

Florio reportedly wants to run his own show and met with executives at IMG shortly after yesterday's announcement; an announcement in the entertainment world is said to be forthcoming.

What about Carol Smith? »

As for his replacement back at Conde Nast, WWD seems to think it's unlikely he'll be replaced. Daily Front Row points out, however, that Carol Smith, who Florio hired two months ago away from her SVP position at Elle to work at Conde Nast on the Gourmet and Bon Appetit brands, may be in line for the gig — she just likely has to wait twelve months after moving to Conde Nast to fulfill her Elle contract's fashion category noncompete clause, which may be why she moved to focus on food instead of fashion in the first place.
