Lisa Valentino is helping evolve Condé Nast from a traditional publishing house into a multi-platform media company.
Valentino first joined the company as Condé Nast Entertainment’s chief revenue officer in 2014. Less than a year later, she was promoted to senior vice president of network sales and partnerships for all of Condé Nast, overseeing print, digital, and video. In 2017, she was named Condé Nast’s chief revenue officer of industry and agency.
In her new role, Valentino will focus on growing company revenue inside industries, improving its relationships with agencies, and increasing its data and programmatic efforts.
However, Valentino has already proven herself a corporate visionary at Condé Nast. Her efforts led to the company’s digital revenue increasing by 22 percent over the course of 2015. She oversaw the launch of new programmatic offerings to advertising partners, which combined data and the latest advertising technology. Since it began in 2015, the company’s programmatic revenue has more than tripled.
During her tenure at the company, she also helped build Condé Nast Entertainment from a nascent studio into a premium digital network that tackles film, television, social video and virtual reality alike. Condé Nast Entertainment boasts five unscripted television series in production or on-air, and it has sold multiple scripted pilots to networks. The studio just wrapped up production on “Granite Mountain,” a feature film starring Josh Brolin and Miles Teller, and 27 more films are actively in development.
