Since founding Pursuitist, I’ve been searching for a great East Coast-based editor to drive our coverage of all things luxe.

I am pleased to announce that not only one, but two familiar faces are joining Pursuitist in this role: Carrie Coolidge and McLean Robbins. I couldn’t be more thrilled that they’re joining us as editors, as both have been superb guest contributors in the past.

With their deep knowledge of the luxury and travel industry, I’m delighted that they’re bringing their voice, experience and influence to Pursuitist.

Please welcome McLean and Carrie.
