New York - Sandow Media has announced that Warren Shoulberg has joined the company as publisher and editorial director for Home Textiles Today and editorial director for Gifts & Decorative Accessories magazines, effective today.
Sandow, publisher of Luxe, NewBeauty, Worth and other media properties, purchased Home Textiles Today and Gifts & Decorative Accessories as well as Interior Design and Furniture/Today from Reed Business information earlier this year.
At Home Textiles Today, Shoulberg succeeds Joe Carena who is retiring as publisher after 14 years with the title. The editorial director positions are new. Jennifer Marks and Caroline Kennedy continue as editors of HTT and GDA, respectively.
Shoulberg was most recently editor-in-chief and associate publisher of Home Furnishings News, and previously spent 11 years as editor of HTT through 2000.
"Bringing Warren on board is a tremendous addition to both publications," said Kevin Castellani, vp and publishing director for the Furniture/Today group who made the announcement. "His knowledge and experience throughout the entire home furnishings industry is unparalleled and we look forward to his contributions at Sandow.
"We also wish Joe well as he starts a new chapter in his life. He did a great job in guiding Home Textiles Today through a turbulent decade in the textiles industry and the success of the magazine is a testament to Joe's hard work and leadership."
Adam Sandow, president of Sandow Media, said the changes reflect his commitment to these new acquisitions.
"We believe strongly in these business publications and bringing on Warren shows we are willing to invest in these properties to allow them to continue to grow and maintain their positions as the leaders in their fields."
Shoulberg will be based here at Sandow's New York office.
