Cara Katz Named Ad Director of New York

Cara Katz has been named New York’s advertising director. This marks a return to New York for Katz, as she previously worked for the magazine as an account exec and a sales assistant.

Katz comes to New York from American Express Publishing (owned by Time Inc.), where she most recently served as director, corporate marketing and sales. She was formerly an account director at Travel + Leisure, an account manager at Food & Wine, and a fashion and retail director at Esquire.

“Cara joins at an exciting time for our company, where the spirit of innovation has never been stronger,” said New York’s publisher, Larry Burstein, in a statement. “Her depth of experience and familiarity with the company make her the perfect candidate to build up and rethink some key categories.”

Katz begins August 14.
