O’Hare has nearly 30 years’ experience in the media and publishing industry, having started her career as a cadet at ACP magazines before working as a journalist and editor in both Australia and London.
During her career she has edited Dolly for ACP and B magazine for Pacific.
Lisa Green, editor-in-chief, Bauer Homes, said, “Eliza is an accomplished editor with extensive experience across significant brands, so I’m delighted she is taking the helm at Inside Out.
“The brand has a deeply engaged audience across print, digital and social and has continued to see growth since it was acquired by Bauer earlier this year. 2019 will be an exciting year, as Inside Out turns 15, so we’re looking forward to working with Eliza on a number of new initiatives and seeing the magazine flourish under her leadership.”
Of her appointment, O’Hare said, “I am absolutely thrilled to be starting on Inside Out. It’s such a dynamic brand, and readers have a real fondness for it. I love that it is a champion of Australian design. Australians are very good at creating incredible homes, gardens and interiors and we will continue to showcase the very best examples. The opportunities to develop the brand further are very exciting – irresistible really!”
Acting editor Victoria Baker will remain with the magazine until the end of the year.
Bauer said Baker has been instrumental in the transition of Inside Out to Bauer Media in July, when Bauer Media acquired the title along with Country Style. Green said: “I would like to thank Victoria for her steady leadership at Inside Out. She has other plans for 2019 and we all wish her well.”
