Bauer Media has announced that Kellie Hush will be stepping down from her role as editor-in-chief of Harper’s Bazaar and departing the publisher.
Hush has been with Bauer for over seven years and during her tenure has made a significant contribution to the business via Harper’s Bazaar and Grazia.
In 2014, Hush launched charity event Bazaar in Bloom, with the funds raised from this annual event resulting in the opening of a public fertility centre at the hospital last year.
Fiorella Di Santo, general manager of publishing at Bauer, said: “Kellie’s longest serving role as editor-in-chief of Harper’s has seen her spearhead the direction of the title and celebrate many key milestones, including the most recent 20th anniversary of the magazine and the Bazaar Woman of the Year issue.
“Under her editorship, the title has continued to flourish, delivering engaging and relevant content to its readers. Kellie has achieved great things in this business and we wish her the same success in her next chapter.”
Commenting on her departure, Hush said: “It hasn’t been an easy decision to leave Bauer Media, especially when I’ve had the pleasure to work with such a great team and lead Australia’s most iconic fashion brands, Harper’s Bazaar.
“Having spent over seven years with Bauer, I feel now is the right time to set my sights on new challenges. I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone, in particular my Bazaar team, for their continued passion and contribution.”
