Cindy Hirschfeld has been named the new editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury’s Aspen Magazine.

The announcement was made Thursday by publisher Alan Klein and Beth Weitzman, vice president of editorial.

Hirschfeld has worked at such publications as Skiing and Aspen Home, including her prior work as Aspen Magazine senior editor, plus six years in book publishing. As an award-winning freelance writer, Hirschfeld has contributed regularly to The New York Times and more than 40 other magazines, including Departures, Robb Report, Private Clubs and Town & Country. She is also the author of the best-selling travel guidebook “Canine Colorado: Where to Go and What to Do With Your Dog.”

“Aspen has such a rich history and so many stories still to tell, thanks to the people who visit and live here, and to the awe-inspiring natural surroundings,” Hirschfeld said. “I can’t wait to share more of what makes Aspen so vibrant and special with our readers, in the same smart, sophisticated voice that has characterized the magazine over the years.”
