Editor in Chief Joerg Koch Stepping Down at Interview Germany

Lisa Feldmann, most recently editor in chief of Annabelle, Switzerland’s largest women’s magazine, has been named to the post.

PEOPLE AND PLACES: There’s going to be a shift at the top at Interview Germany. Editor in chief Joerg Koch, at the helm of the German magazine since its February 2012 debut while simultaneously overseeing his biannual cultural magazine 032c, is returning to the latter publication full time as publisher and editor in chief. While his planned departure is official, the exact exit date is not.

Lisa Feldmann, most recently editor in chief of Annabelle, Switzerland’s largest women’s magazine, has been named to succeed Koch. Similarly, the precise date of her Berlin start has not yet been decided, but sources estimate she’ll be on board by late spring or early summer.

Feldmann also previously occupied the editor in chief slot at German Cosmopolitan and did top-level stints at German Elle, the Süddeutsche Zeitung magazine, Stern and Tempo.

Now going into its second year, Interview Germany, which is published 10 times a year, has a sold circulation of 55,000 copies. The cover price is 6 euros, or about $8 at current exchange.
