Jane Francisco, editor-in-chief of Rogers Media's Chatelaine since 2009, has been tapped by American publishing giant Hearst as the new editor-in-chief of Good Housekeeping.

Francisco is relocating from Toronto to New York and is scheduled to start her new role on Dec. 2. She takes over from outgoing editor Rosemary Ellis, who leaves to pursue new opportunities. "I am thrilled to be joining the Good Housekeeping team," Francisco said in a Hearst release. "It's an exciting time to lead this dynamic and iconic brand as we look for new ways to bring the best solutions and creative ideas to women's lives."

Before her tenure at Chatelaine, Franciso served as editor-in-chief of Style at Home. From 2005 to 2008 she was founding editor-in-chief of Wish at St. Joseph’s Media, where she was appointed editorial director of the publisher's Lifestyle Group in 2006. She was launch editor-in-chief of Glow from 2001 to 2004.

"Jane is an incredibly versatile editor, leader and branding expert, with the experience and vision to build on the lively, friendly energy of the revamped Good Housekeeping," said Hearst Magazines president David Carey.

"Chatelaine is the largest circulation women's magazine in Canada, and we've been highly impressed with how Jane executed a top-to-bottom modernization of the brand. We're thrilled to have her on the Hearst team, leading one of our core titles," he said.
