Condé Nast Taps Time Inc.’s Monica Ray as EVP of Consumer Marketing

conde-nast-logo08252010.pngMagazine titan Condé Nast, which has in recent weeks made several high-level moves on the business side, has hired Time Inc. paid content strategist Monica Ray as its new executive vice president for consumer marketing.

paidContent reports:

Ray worked closely with fellow ex-Time Inc. colleague John Squires on establishing Next Issue Media, the media company joint venture that is attempting to create a digital storefront and is backed by Condé Nast, Hearst, Meredith, and News Corp.

She is currently a board member of Next Issue — although it’s Time Inc.’s seat. It’s not clear if she will retain that spot with Next Issue when she moves over to Condé Nast. A Time Inc. rep said that they will choose another executive to represent the company on Next Issue’s board.

Other recent big-time HR moves by Cond&eacute include the hire of Viacom chief technology officer Joe Simon, the placement of Wired creative director Scott Dadich in a high-level position in charge of publishing platforms (iPad, basically) and the promotion of consumer marketing group president Robert Sauerberg to president of the company.
