Rodale Inc. Senior Vice President and Group Publisher Jack Essig is leaving to join Hearst Magazines as publishing director and chief revenue officer of Esquire, Fins.com reported Hearst as saying Wednesday.

David Granger is impatient. But you would never know it by looking at him. Standing in front of the plate glass windows in his office, suited to perfection in black Armani, the editor-in-chief of the famed Esquire magazine is the very picture of calm, unassuming confidence and contentedness. But make no mistake, the impatience is there, just below the surface. Evidence of it can be seen in Esquire’s pages, especially on its covers. As Granger puts it, it is a “general impatience with the way things are,” and it drives him to strive for things that have never been done before.
