Atlantic Media Brings on ‘Extreme Talent’

Atlantic Media Chairman David Bradley announced today that Andy Sareyan is joining the company as Executive Veep of Atlantic Media Company and President of National Journal Group. In a release they call Sareyan “one of the country’s most accomplished media executives.”

Among his tasks will be to work alongside NJ Editor-in-Chief Ron Fournier, Editorial Director Ron Brownstein and Magazine Editor Charles Green to expand the publication’s agenda, which includes “transitioning from a subscription model to a full-service membership model.” He sees potential: “They already have a world-class editorial team that creates products read by some of the most influential people in America. It’s hard to imagine a stronger base for growth.”

Sareyan was most recently President of Consumer Brands at the Meredith Corporation, which publishes Better Homes and Gardens, Family Circle, Parents, Fitness, More, American Baby, Traditional Home, and Midwest Living. Before joining Meredith, he spent 18 years in a number of leadership roles at Time Inc.

Bradley summed up his new hire, saying, “At least by ambition, Atlantic Media recruits for two qualities – force of intellect and a spirit of generosity. With Andy, we get both – and an animating gift of leadership. Andy is extreme talent arriving at the company at an hour of extreme growth. We are at that uncommon moment when every brand is growing rapidly. Andy’s assignment is to grow us faster still.”
