AMI Promotes Publisher

American Media, Inc. (AMI) has promoted Kristen Elliott from publisher of Fit Pregnancy and Natural Health to Vice President, Group Publisher of the AMI Women’s Active Lifestyle Group. In her new position, Elliott will oversee the Shape, Fit Pregnancy and Natural Health brands.

“Kristen’s performance and work ethic since she has been with AMI merited this promotion,” said David Pecker, CEO and President of AMI. “As publisher of Fit Pregnancy, she never once missed her budget and succeeded in making the brand a must buy for advertisers in the parenting category. She has worked closely with the Shape staff in the past on integrated programs and thoroughly understands the health & fitness marketplace.”

Elliott will also assume the role of Publisher of Shape, which will be vacated by Brian Gruseke in April, as we noted this morning.
