Veteran Exec Exits Condé Nast | People on the Move — 1.25.17
Vox Media promotes CMO, Vogue Italia finds a new EIC, and more...
Hunsinger served as CRO of Golf Digest since 2011, but has held various roles at Condé Nast, including VP and publisher of GQ. He was also a publisher at Vanity Fair, Architectural Digest and Gourmet.
“To say he has contributed to Condé Nast over the years is a wild understatement — by all accounts, Pete has been a tireless and passionate advocate for our company and brands and he will be greatly missed,” Jim Norton, chief business officer and president of revenue at CN, said in a memo.
Hunsinger’s exit comes in advance of a broad consolidation that’s planned at the New York-based publisher. Norton — previously an AOL executive — was hired late last year to reorganize the company and help build its digital business.
Here are the rest of this week’s people on the move:
Vox Media has promoted Lindsay Nelson to the position of CMO. She served most recently as VP and head of global brand strategy at the company.
Additionally, Armando Turco will join Vox as the first GM of Vox Creative, to lead the company’s branded content division.

Alexandra Shulman, British Vogue’s longest serving editor, is leaving the brand. Her successor will be announced later this year.
