Condé Nast Gets Crisis Management Help

4 times square.jpgIt’s no surprise that Condé Nast has been getting a lot of bad press recently in the wake of heavy staff cuts and four magazine closures.

But, according to reports, it looks like Si Newhouse is taking the advice of Lucky publisher Gina Sanders and getting some help from an expert: crisis manager and media coach Michael Sheehan.

Our sister blog PRNewser says that Sheehan “has experience in politics and finance having counseled Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, AIG during last year’s crisis, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and JP Morgan.”

We’re looking forward to see how Sheehan works to put a happy spin on all the bad news that’s been coming out of 4 Times Square these last few weeks. Will he return the Orangina to the shrunken staff to boost morale?
