Fran Hauser, Top Time Inc. Exec, Departs Company

Fran Hauser, who has been with Time Inc. for a decade, is leaving the company. Hauser most recently served as president of digital for the publishing house’s Style & Entertainment and Lifestyle Groups. Hauser oversaw brands such as People, InStyle, Sunset and Cooking Light.

The New York Post reports that one reason for Hauser’s departure is that Joe Ripp, CEO of Time Inc., passed over her when he named Colin Bodell the company’s chief technology officer in January.

In a Facebook post announcing her decision, Hauser wrote, “I’m so grateful to all of my amazing colleagues for their friendship, support and mentorship through the years.”
