Phillip Picardi        

Editor-in-chief of Out & Former Digital Editorial Director at Teen Vogue & Allure

Phillip Picardi is the editor-in-chief of Out.

Previously Piardi served as the digital editorial director for Teen Vogue and Allure, both Condé Nast publications.

Picardi started his publishing career as an intern at Teen Vogue. He then served as online beauty editor at Teen Vogue before becoming senior beauty editor at Refinery29 in September 2014. At Refinery29 he worked for Mikki Halpin, whose influence as well as Picardi's personal experiences led to a growing interest in political engagement alongside his work on beauty.

Picardi returned to Teen Vogue as digital editorial director in April 2015, the next year becoming part of a reorganization of the magazine's leadership with editor Elaine Welteroth, creative director Marie Suter and Picardi replacing departing founding editor-in-chief Amy Astley. Picardi oversees web content and social media for Teen Vogue, significantly increasing traffic to its website; in January 2017, the magazine's website had 7.9 million US visitors compared with 2.9 million the previous January. He has also been part of the magazine's shift in focus on social issues and politics, part of his pitch when he joined the magazine.

With the growth the site has seen through this approach, Fast Company named Picardi to its "Most Creative People" in 2017, "for reading teenagers' minds" in his work to "align with every aspect of its socially conscious readers' lives": the politics section has now surpassed entertainment as the site's most-read section. Under Picardi, also won 2017 Webby Awards for both the Fashion & Beauty and the Education & Discovery categories.

In March 2017, his role at Condé Nast expanded to become as digital editorial director for Allure as well as Teen Vogue. Under Picardi's leadership, Allure has also seen a significant rise in web traffic: April 2017 had a 53% increase over the prior year (6.9 million over 4.5 million in April 2016).
