Even though President of Revenue/Chief Business Officer Jim Norton has been gone from Conde Nast for about 2 weeks now, the company continues in its perpetual state of restructuring under new Chief Business & Marketing Officer Pamela Drucker Mann a co-author of the original Norton plan. The latest reorg has claimed two execs, The New Yorker’s Lisa Hughes and former Architectural Digest publisher Giulio Capua. Both execs were let go as the company has now reorged about 22 of its publications into five groups under five chief business officers. Here is how things are looking at the company right now under the new set up.
-Chris Mitchell will oversee “The Culture Collection,” which includes Vanity Fair, The New Yorker, W, Teen Vogue and the newly launched Them.
-Alison Moore who just joined the company will run “The Beauty Collection,” made up of Glamour, Allure, The Scene and Brides
-Kim Kelleher will lead “The Innovation Collection” which includes of GQ, GQ Style, Pitchfork, Wired, Golf Digest, Ars Technica and Backchannel
-Lisa Valentino continues to lead the “Industry” team, which sells ads across categories like consumer goods, pharmaceutical, auto and other categories in addition to managing the Conde’s agency relationships.
-Craig Kostelic will lead “The Lifestyle Collection,” which includes Bon Appétit, Epicurious, Architectural Digest, Condé Nast Traveler and Self.
Vogue not shockingly was left untouched as a stand alone business and will continue to be overseen by Susan Plagemann. This is not the last of the reorg at Conde Nast. Perhaps by the new year these five groups will shrink to about 3. More cuts are expected across the company probably in time for the holidays so Conde can kick off 2018 many pounds lighter.
