Today (Sept. 16), Condé Nast CEO Chuck Townsend and president Bob Sauerberg announced the shuffling of these executives:
- Carolyn Kremins, Brides VP/publisher since Oct. 2009, becomes Condé Nast Traveler VP/publisher.
- Michelle Myers, Lucky VP/publisher since Feb. 2010, becomes Brides VP/publisher.
- Marcy Bloom, Gentlemen’s Quarterly associate publisher since Dec. 2006, becomes Lucky VP/publisher.
- Chris Mitchell, Condé Nast Traveler publisher since Feb. 2009 becomes Gentlemen’s Quarterly publisher.
- Pete Hunsinger, GQ publisher since July 2003, becomes Golf Digest Cos. president/publisher.
Separately, Brides editor-in-chief (since 1995) Millie Bratten was replaced by Marie Claire executive editor Anne Fulenwider. Bratten, who had survived the October 2009 CN consolidation of Brides with Modern Bride and Elegant Bride, ended a 35-year stint with the magazine.
At Golf Digest, publishing director (since Sept. 2004) Tom Bair and Golf World publisher Laura Sequenzia (since May 2009) now report to Hunsinger.
Brides‘ +0.7% is the best Jan.-Oct. 2011-versus-2010 advertising page differential among the affected magazines. CNT is -0.5%; GD, -3.1%; and GQ and Lucky are both -6.0%.
Announcement follows rumors of CN publishers’ movement culminating with those today (Sept. 16) from Women’s Wear Daily and the New York Post.
