MIDDLETOWN, R.I. — George Sass Jr., editor-in-chief of Yachting, recently announced three key changes to the monthly publication’s editorial staff, including the promotion of Mary South to deputy editor. As a result of South’s promotion, Dennis Caprio returned to the title to fill the vacant senior editor position, and associate editor Chris White was promoted to managing editor.
“These moves strengthen Yachting’s ability to achieve our mission of enhancing the experience of the serious boater across multiple platforms,” Sass said.
South, a published author and editorial veteran, will play a key role in content and writer development, strategic planning and cross-platform story extensions. She will also continue to produce features, two of which have recently won national awards.
Caprio returns to Yachting in the same role he filled from 1992 to 2003, overseeing design, technology, and new boat beats. Caprio was also a project manager for Yachting’s 100th Anniversary issues, which appeared each month in 2007.
White will be responsible for managing the production cycles for print and digital products while he continues to produce the Currents and Gear departments. He will also oversee the annual Yachting Registry and produce the magazine’s Twitter feeds.
South, Caprio and White will all be based in Bonnier Corp.’s Middletown, R.I., office.
