He replaces Roger Cummings, who took the role of publishing director for IPC Connect's women's lifestyle portfolio in September, and will report to Justine Southall, publishing director of the title.

Southall said: "Toby has gained a fantastic mix of editorial and business experience through his successful career to date.

"This mix of skills, and his working knowledge of brand building, makes him the perfect person to join Marie Claire as we launch into a year of developments across the brand."
