As a senior writer, Kroslakova will write across The AFR Magazine, Luxury magazine, Life&Leisure, AFR Weekend, daily news and an upgraded lifestyle and luxury section on afr.com, including blogging, video and social media.

Kroslakova’s role spans all areas of luxury – particularly the business of luxury – in addition to continuing to edit the quarterly Luxury magazine, the latest edition out today (Friday).

The Financial Review’s editor-in-chief Michael Stutchbury and editor Paul Bailey said: “As well as editing Luxury magazine, Katarina has been the highly successful editor of Life&Leisure for the past six years, and proven her capabilities editorially and commercially. Her appointment is an exciting opportunity for us to further leverage the Financial Review’s valuable audience and sumptuous content into high-end creative business areas.

Prior to joining the Financial Review, Kroslakova was editor of Limelight magazine.

Perkins has been confirmed as editor of the weekly Life&Leisure liftout after serving as Acting editor of the title over the past six months while Kroslakova was on maternity leave.

In addition to editing Life&Leisure, Perkins will have responsibility for producing the lifestyle and magazine content online in conjunction with the editors of Financial Review titles.

Charis Perkins

“This is part of a determined push to raise the profile of Financial Review magazine and lifestyle content online to reflect the richness of what’s presented to readers in print,” Stutchbury and Bailey said.

Perkins has worked in various production roles at the Financial Review since 2008, most recently producing Life&Leisure and content for AFR Weekend and as acting editor of Life&Leisure.

Commenting on the appointments, Stutchbury and Bailey said: “We are excited by these appointments as both Katarina and Charis are immensely talented individuals. In their roles, they will strengthen our already strong position in producing a quality and depth of luxury and lifestyle editorial content for our readers and advertisers.

“The Financial Review’s core business readership audience provides an opportunity to extend to the luxury end of various consumer ‘verticals’, as shown by the Financial Review Domain Prestige weekly liftout and Australia’s Top 100 Restaurants initiatives.”
