Our long time friend Jordan Speer, Editor in Chief of Apparel Magazine since 2007, worked her last day yesterday.
Jordan joined the magazine in 1996, one year after I had started here at AAPN. We have literally crossed paths virtually every year since, and we share memories that would double you over laughing.
Jordan started at the magazine in 1996 as an Associate Editor, was elevated to Senior Editor in 2000 and Editor in Chief in 2007. She holds undergraduate and graduate degrees in English from the University of Virginia.
Few thought leaders have experienced as much history with access to such high levels of vision and experience as Jordan has in our very difficult industry. Read her moving farewell editorial here: https://apparelmag.com/farewell-editor
