“Kingori brings with her nearly 20 years experience in the media industry with a strong track record for digitalisation, business transformation, and change management across multiple brands,” the statement read in part. 

Kingori will be tasked to steer the commercial departments of the various fashion magazine brands, including Vogue, GQ, Wired, Vanity Fair, Glamour, Tatler, Condé Nast Traveller, House & Garden and The World of Interiors.

Before her recent appointment, Kingori made history in the company as the first woman to take charge of the business department at Vogue in 2017.

She was British GQ’s publishing director and was behind the title’s successful digital business drive. Prior to joining Condé, she worked at London’s Evening Standard and Esquire in Britain.

Taking to her Instagram account on Monday, Kingori expressed excitement for her new role and added that the appointment was a good leap of faith by the media company.

“I’ll continue to lead British Vogue for good measure! Thank you for the support of everyone who believes that a girl like me deserves a seat at the table,” she wrote.
