Carla Buzasi leaves HuffPo UK to head up Top Right fashion trade website WGSN

By William Turvill

Huffington Post UK founding editor Carla Buzasi is leaving the website after three years to be global chief content officer of Top Right’s fashion trade website WGSN.

Buzasi, who recently declared that HuffPo had become “part of the [media] establishment”, will be replaced by executive editor Stephen Hull, formerly of the Metro.

According to The Guardian, whose parent company Guardian Media Group owns 32.9 per cent of Top Right, the move is a “blow to HuffPo UK, which tried to keep Buzasi’s hankering for life beyond news sated by promoting her to lead global editorial strategy for lifestyle and the Third Metric”.

Buzasi is quoted as saying: “I have relished every opportunity and challenge along the way. Now it is time for a new chapter and another amazing opportunity.”

HuffPo founder and president, Arianna Huffington, said: “I’m very grateful we had Carla for the birth of HuffPost UK. Her dedication and passion helped turn a hungry newborn into a precocious, award-winning three-year-old. As we head into year four, we couldn’t be more excited about the path HuffPost UK is on and all the great things yet to come.”

According to The Guardian, Buzasi managed a team of 45 at HuffPo, with the site attracting 8 million monthly unique users.
