People on the Move
Time Inc. makes changes to its Style Network and more...
Ahead of its NewFront presentation Thursday, Time Inc. announced a few major staff changes.
News broke on Tuesday that Nina Lawrence, publisher of InStyle, was ousted after just six months on the job. The move was a surprise to many, given her short stay and the digital know-how Lawrence was billed as bringing to the brand. She previously served as vice president of global marketing and advertising sales at The Wall Street Journal.
While there’s no word on a replacement for Lawrence, Time Inc. did announce it has hired Deborah Marquardt as general manager of its Style Network. Ezinne Udezue was also brought on as vice president of new product strategy.
Marquardt will oversee their existing digital businesses and identify new partnerships and investment areas in the beauty and fashion space. Udezue will oversee a team that tests and launches new products.
