Meredith gets a chief strategist and more...
The Meredith Corporation hired former WE tv president and longtime TV exec, Kim Martin, to serve as its chief strategy officer. The company will task Martin to further expand its brands’ Millennial reach.
Martin’s roots in TV are deep, with decades of experience and a range of disciplines. She has held positions in media management, content development, sales and marketing. Besides her role as president and general manager at WE, Martin also worked with its parent company Rainbow Media as VP of distribution and affiliate marketing, representing additional brands like AMC, Fuse and IFC.
Prior to that, she was with Discovery Networks for 10 years.
“Kim brings outstanding skills and experiences to this position, particularly in the video content creation field,” CEO Steve Lacy says in a statement. “She has a proven track record of successful media leadership on a senior level, and cut her teeth in sales and marketing roles. Kim will serve as a valued advisor, particularly as it pertains to increasing our already strong reach to millennial women–as well as expanding our video strategy–across all our media platforms.”
