Co-Founder and President of Beverly Hills Lifestyle Mark Kurian expressed his excitement in a statement:
"Lisa Vanderpump embodies everything Beverly Hills Lifestyle stands for. She is class, grace, and luxury personified and her personal touch will take Beverly Hills Lifestyle in an exciting direction. Readers will be able to instantly relate to our content, both in print and digital, and we are confident Lisa will be a driving force in taking our already successful brand to new heights."
Vanderpump already has a slew of popular restaurants throughout Beverly Hills and West Hollywood, and her new role of EIC fits perfectly with her knowledge of the city. Joining Vanderpump in her role at the magazine is her daughter, Pandora Vanderpump Sabo, who will take on the role of Executive Editor.
Vanderpump shared her plans and her relationship with the magazine in her first letter as editor, expressing her goals for the magazine as well as some of her plans to come.
"Each month we will highlight a different charity, as well as try and tie in a philanthropic aspect to all of our plans and events. I'm excited to use this opportunity to draw attention to some wonderful causes."
