Medium Rare content agency has announced changes to its Qantas content team.
Jessica Irvine has been appointed as the new executive editor of Qantas magazine and its website, Travel Insider.
Irvine joined Medium Rare in April 2016 as associate editor of Qantas magazine before being appointed editor of QantasLink’s Spirit magazine in July 2018, where she has overseen a highly successful redesign.
She also edited Visit Canberra’s 2020 visitor guide, published by Medium Rare.
Before joining Medium Rare, Irvine worked across a wide array of Australian titles, including InStyle magazine, as associate editor; kidspot.com.au, as news editor; and Madison, as deputy editor.
Replacing Irvine in the role of Spirit editor is Helen Martin, who has served as the title’s chief sub-editor for the past year. Before joining Medium Rare, Martin worked at Who magazine for many years in a variety of roles, including executive editor and senior editor.
Kirsten Galliott, head of content, travel & kuxury at Medium Rare, welcomed both appointments. “We are fortunate to have a wealth of talent within the company and I am delighted to make these internal promotions. Jessica is an incredible asset to the Qantas team and will bring her enthusiasm and experience to the print and digital titles, as well as many of our events. Helen has a vast knowledge of regional Australia and will make a fantastic editor of Spirit.”
Di Webster, the former managing editor of Qantas magazine, is also re-joining the Qantas team as editor-at-large. During her 30-plus years in journalism, Webster has worked on numerous publications, including Time magazine, Who and Marie Claire, as well as stints in television.
