Luisa Tam appointed editor-in-chief of HK Magazine

SCMP Group has named Luisa Tamas editor-in-chief of HK Magazine, taking over from long-serving editor Zach Hines.

Hines, along with managing editor Sarah Fung are both leaving the magazine to pursue new projects.

Tam is a seasoned journalist with more than 30 years of experience, has worked across print, broadcast and radio organisations in Hong Kong and overseas. She has worked with the South China Morning Post for 14 years in various capacities, including deputy news editor, op-ed editor and Lai See columnist.

In addition to her media career, she has corporate publishing, communications and executive development experience in the public and private sectors. Tam will report to Elsie Cheung, chief operating officer of the SCMP Group.

“We are delighted that Luisa is returning to the SCMP Group to spearhead HK Magazine’s growth," Cheung said.

"Under her guardianship, we are confident that the HK Magazine editorial team will continue to create relevant and engaging content that has catapulted the title to become one of the most beloved weekly lifestyle magazines in Hong Kong.”

SCMP said that since its acquisition of HK Magazine in May 2013, the publication has made an "encouraging contribution" to the SCMP Group.

HK Magazine is published by the HK Magazine Media Ltd, a subsidiary of the Group, which also publishes Where Magazine and The List, as well as a number of mobile and web products.
