Pacific Magazines’ general manager of fashion, beauty, health and Pac+, Jackie Frank, has tendered her resignation from the publisher.

B&T was informed of Frank’s departure in an email earlier this morning.

Frank has been in the GM role at Pac Mags for the past two years, and has worked at the publisher for more than 23 years.

Seven West Media CEO Tim Worner said: “Jackie is regarded both within Pacific and among industry peers as one of Australia’s most successful and respected publishing executives.

“She is known for her intrinsic understanding of the consumer, her passion to drive brand innovation, her ability to create extraordinary content and for leading teams to their full potential, especially in a time of great transition.

“Jackie’s unique ability to be equally at ease in both commercial and creative environments has been the linchpin of her success.

“On a personal note, I will miss Jackie’s passion, commitment and results-driven focus on quality. As someone who was always committed to delivering the very best, I look forward to seeing what she achieves next. She leaves an extraordinary legacy of success with our brands.

“On behalf of the company, I’d like to thank Jackie for all her hard work and service over the last two decades. We all wish her well in the future.”

Commenting on her departure, Frank said: “At Pacific, I’ve been fortunate to work with some of the most gifted and dynamic people in the industry. Being able to steer these incredible brands has been a privilege and honour beyond words.

“Over the last four years as an executive in charge of the fashion, beauty, health and custom group, we’ve rolled out many exciting digital platforms, as well as successful content and brand initiatives across the portfolio.

“It’s been a time of great transition in this ever-evolving media landscape and one that I’ve relished. Through it all have been two constants: being able to produce exceptional, engaging content for our publications and consumer brands and working with our wonderful team and clients alike.

“My proudest achievement has been the opportunity to champion women’s issues while helming marie claire through ground-breaking campaigns such as gender equality, paid maternity leave, domestic violence and depression, and right now these and related issues are more relevant and important than ever.

“My passion for creating engaging content and working to build strong brands remains undiminished after two decades.

“I’ve worked alongside many talented people at Pacific who have taken on new challenges outside the organisation, and now it’s time for me to do the same.”
