American Media Inc has installed Gwen Flamberg as the new Vice President of beauty and style for AMI’s celebrity group. But that’s not all. Ms. Flamberg will be pulling double duty in the additional role of executive editor of beauty and style for Us Weekly. In her new roles she will be reporting not to Chief Content Officer Dylan Howard but to CEO David Pecker who is known to be very hands on with his publications. This is a major elevation for Ms. Flamberg as she is now on par with other Pecker direct reports. Before her promotion she served as the publication’s beauty director.
Said Mr. Pecker:
“Gwen not only represents the amazing depth of talent that was key to our acquisition of Us Weekly but also the passion and commitment that underscores how this brand will continue to grow and flourish in the coming months. Her comprehensive industry knowledge and her insights and impact on beauty and style trends is an extraordinary asset that can continue to be leveraged to the benefit of our brands’ passionate audiences in this new role.”
