Editor in Chief Jason Roop has announced plans to leave Style at the end of May to launch a business focused on content development and communications. His last day will be May 26.

Roop has served the company for 20 years, starting with the former Inside Business publication in Richmond and following with Style as a staff reporter and managing editor. He has served as editor of Style, which marks its 35th year of publishing, for the last 12 years.

“I’m going to miss working with this tremendously creative and talented team,” Roop says. “But I’ve been looking forward to this new chapter -- and know that Style is in experienced hands.”

Style Publisher Lori Collier Waran says she and the editorial team will begin a search for a new editor soon.
