Conde Nast's men's title GQ is losing two more top editors as its story editor Joel Lovell is reportedly heading to the the New York Times Magazine while director of editorial processes Mark Healy has been snapped up by Men's Journal to make him its deputy editor.
The Observer reports that the New York Times Magazine editor Hugo Lingdren, who took over the reins in September, was involved in poaching Lovell, an important financial writer for GQ and author of its 'Men+Money' column.
Lingdren's earlier important moves since taking over the mantle at the New York Times Magazine were appointing Lauren Kern as deputy editor and Greg Veis as front-of-the-book editor.
Meanwhile, Mark Healy was also set to quit his position of director of editorial processes at GQ to join Men's Journal as its deputy editor.
These departures will further dent the talent pool at GQ which saw its style editor Adam Rapoport make a move to Bon Appetit as its editor in October.
Moreover, GQ was yet to fill earlier vacancies, for instance that created by the departure of executive editor Andy Ward who moved to Random House in 2009.
