Hearst Magazines Restructures and Promotes

With the deal for Hachette Filipacchi Media finally closed, Hearst has begun to shuffle around staffers and deal with adding all the new magazines. Yesterday Kevin O’Malley moved from Esquire to Elle, and today the company has announced a few more changes.

James B. Meigs, Editor-in-Chief of Popular Mechanics, has been named Editorial Director for the newly created Men’s Enthusiast Group. Meigs will now oversee Popular Mechanics as well as new titles Car and Driver and Road & Track.

Additionally, Patricia Haegele, Senior Vice President, Publisher and Chief Revenue Officer of Good Housekeeping, is now Publishing Director, and Kate Kelly Smith, Vice President, Publisher and Chief Revenue Officer of House Beautiful, has been promoted to Senior Vice President and Publishing Director. Both Haegele and Kelly Smith will oversee several magazines in their new positions.

This is likely just the beginning of a whole slew of changes, which means FishbowlNY will have to stay extra sharp on all the names and titles that will be flying around, but for Hearst Magazines, it’s a good problem to have.
