Homes Publishing Group sees a lot of shifts: Gale Beeby replaces Toni Pettit as editor of Homes Magazine and Condo Life. She was previously real estate editor at the Toronto Star's New in Homes & Condos section.

Cindy Lloyd joins Homes Magazine and Condo Life as well, as executive vice president of sales and associate publisher. She also comes from the Toronto Star where she worked 26 years in the ad department, most recently as advertising sales manager for Major Retail-Home and New Homes and Condos.

Meanwhile, Jackie Glass stepped down as decor editor at Reno & Condo to concentrate on her design firm, Jacqueline Glass and Associates. A regular guest on CityLine, Glass was part of the "all-star lineup" of well-known design and decor experts that Homes Publishing appointed at Reno & Decor in October.
