She has tremendous editorial instincts, strong design sensibilities, experience launching publications and possesses a lifelong understanding of the vitality and excitement of the Bay Area,” Weitzman adds.
“When discussing our growth strategy, Silicon Valley was an obvious choice. It is one of the leading wealth-generating markets in the world, and has quickly become an influential center of culture and community beyond its technological roots,” said Marcy Bloom, Senior Vice President and Group Publisher of Modern Luxury. “Currently, there is no other brand with our expertise aggregating and editing the luxury lifestyle serving this market. Beth Weitzman, Jon Steinberg and Paul Reulbach have assembled an extraordinary local team to do so.”

Her additional experiences as editor-at-large for California Home + Design and as a regular contributor to the San Francisco Chronicle round out her lifestyle reporting expertise. A lifelong resident of the Bay Area, Le will lead a talented editorial team that shares a wealth of experience in the industry and deep insider knowledge of the Silicon Valley and Bay Area cultural landscape.
“Silicon Valley is the epicenter of new business development, creativity, and growth, and deserves a celebration of the people and places that make it one of the world’s most exciting places to work and live,” said Anh-Minh Le, editor-in-chief of Silicon Valley. “This publication will be an insider’s guide to culture, design, fashion, art and dining, that will also offer sophisticated, thoughtful editorial content that will be of service and interest to the Silicon Valley resident and visitor alike.”
