“In addition to identifying and fostering talent, Jon will help create new brands and partnerships and strengthen existing ones as we double-down on development,” says chief content officer Joanna Coles in a company statement. “Following on the success of our premiere issues of The Pioneer Woman and Airbnbmag, we’re more focused than ever on accelerating the process from idea to introduction.”
