Scott Dadich Returns to Wired--As Editor in Chief

Scott Dadich has been named editor in chief of Wired, Condé Nast announced today.

Dadich, who is replacing Chris Anderson, comes from the corporate side at Condé Nast -- most recently as VP, editorial platforms and design since 2010. Dadich was the CD of Wired from 2006-2010.

"Scott has been at the forefront of the company's digital innovation for the past three years, developing the design for a digital magazine that has become an industry standard,"said Condé Nast editorial director Tom Wallace. "His return to Wired, where he served as CD and won three National Magazine Awards for Design, will ensure that it continues its pace-setting growth."

While Dadich was CD at Wired, the magazine received three consecutive National Magazine Awards for Design. He is the only CD ever to win both the National Magazine Award for Design and the Society of Publication Designers Magazine of the Year Award for three consecutive years (2008-2010). 

"I'm excited to return to Wired, which has had such a tremendous impact on my life and my career," Dadich said. "I'm honored to have the chance to build on the legacy of innovation that Louis and Jane started some 20 years ago. And I am grateful to my friend and colleague Chris and the incredible Wired staff. I look forward to finding new opportunities to delight and surprise the Wired community, both with the stories we tell and in the ways in which we tell them."

Dadich has been instrumental in leading Conde Nast's aggressive strategy toward tablet development, working closely with Adobe and the company's titles as a corporate vice president. Conde Nast did not mention in its press release whether a replacement would be named.
