Anna Wintour Hires Former DNC Finance Director Hildy Kuryk

Anna Wintour Hires Former Political Fundraiser as Vogue Communications Director

Buried in a story about a Condé Nast cocktail party Tuesday night is the news that Anna Wintour has hired Hildy Kuryk, former finance director of the Democratic National Committee, as the new communications director at Vogue.

Kuryk, according to WWD, will replace Megan Salt, who is leaving the magazine for Amazon Fashion. But even though Salt hasn't left yet, Kuryk gave reporters the "no comment" line in regards to Vogue's upcoming move from 4 Times Square to One World Financial Center in 2015.

Before coming to Vogue, Kuryk cut her teeth in political fundraising, first as a finance consultant for Barack Obama's 2008 presidential run, and later as the finance director at the Democratic National Committee. It's doubtless that Kuryk interacted with Wintour, one of the Obama campaign's top fundraisers, in both of these roles. It's also doubtless that she was good at her job: Politico named Kuryk one of its 50 people to watch in 2011.
