Agnes B. Chapski was named vice president and publisher of InStyle today, replacing Laura Frerer-Schmidt in the top spot. The change is effective immediately, Meredith said.

Chapski joins Meredith after serving for a year as president of New Beauty and parent company Sandow’s Beauty Engine. She spent almost nine years as publisher and CRO of Allure before that.

She will report to Meredith Magazine president Doug Olson.

“An accomplished brand builder and innovative executive, Agnes is a proven leader who creates and builds revenue and profitability across consumer lifestyle brands in the beauty, fashion and luxury space,” Olson said in a statement.

Frerer-Schmidt is no longer with the company and is said to be pursuing other opportunities at this time.

“I’m thrilled to join Meredith and InStyle, an authoritative brand that celebrates inspirational fashion and beauty content for all women,” Chapski said. “InStyle ignites the desire to shop and is uniquely positioned as a must-buy for marketers looking for proven solutions and access that drive results.”
