Mia Tramz will be rejoining the TIME newsroom as editorial director, enterprise and immersive experiences from her current position as managing editor of TIME’s LIFE VR. While making the transition into her new role, Tramz will continue to oversee LIFE VR and work with other brands to produce 360 video, VR and AR. In her new position, however, she will take on the responsibilities of overseeing enterprise projects across all platforms, and looking for opportunities to augment the impact of brand content.
Earning two Emmy nominations in Tramz last role, including one for the first VR docu-series covering the world’s tallest peak, “Capturing Everest” for Sports Illustrated, TIME’s editor-in-chief, Edward Felsenthal said in an announcement to his staff that “Mia has repeatedly proven herself to be an outstanding digital innovator.”
We agree, having just named Mia one of our 2018 Top Women in Media, Industry Trailblazer honorees.
Creating TIME’s first AR-activated issue as well as its first VR hologram, Felsenthal says of her promotion, “you can expect more of that to come.”
Here are the rest of this week’s people on the move…
