ELISE : VP OF EDITORIAL + NEW BUSINESS

West Loop dweller Elise Hofer Shaw brings nearly 20 years of writing + editing experience to Chrome City. Beginning in 2000 as an assistant editor at CSmagazine, she worked her way up the ranks at Modern Luxury, including positions as Senior Editor of CS magazine (10 years), Founding Editor and Editor-In-Chief of The Men’s Book (4 years), and Editor-In-Chief of Modern Luxury Weddings (7 years). From 2014-2019, Hofer Shaw launched and spearheaded the content for Sophisticated Living Chicago’s printed magazine as Editor-In-Chief in addition to heading up the brand's content for slmagchicago.com and contributing travel stories to all of the mags under the Sophisticated Living umbrella. When she's off the clock at Chrome City, Hofer Shaw enjoys spending quality time with her husband and adorable daughter, Emma, skiing, reading or walking her dog, Mr. Bubs—and squeezing in as many Pilates classes as possible so she can eat her way around the city she calls home. @ehofershaw
