Food Network Magazine Promotes, Expands Marketing Staff

mag.jpgWith Meredith Corporation publications like Better Homes and Gardens and Family Circle perhaps being the only magazines increasing ad pages this year, is it any surprise that other home and cooking titles are looking to increase in the same way?

Food Network Magazine is certainly looking to get its name out there, today announcing the promotion of two of their employees to high-level marketing positions: former marketing coordinator Nikki Zila has been bumped up to associate manager in integrated marketing, while previous manager Allison Home will now be serving as marketing director. Meanwhile, two new hires, Fabian Castro and Julie Mahoney, have been brought on as director of brand development and director of promotions and merchandising, respectively.
