Moritz Loew Named Time VP of Sales

Moritz Loew has been named Time’s new vice president of sales. Loew comes to the magazine from his own consulting company. Prior to that he was senior vice president of sales for The Huffington Post. Loew was fired from HuffPost after a background check turned up an arrest warrant regarding a DWI.

Time continues to aggressively expand its digital chops, and it was very important to find someone with an exceptional digital IQ, tremendous industry relationships, a true understanding of the power of brands and the appreciation for the vitality of a winning culture,” wrote Jed Hartman, Time Inc.’s news and business group publisher, in a memo to staffers. “When I met Moritz, I knew I had found someone who embodied all of these qualities.”

Hartman’s full memo is below.

Team TIME,

I am very happy to introduce Moritz Loew as our new VP, Sales at TIME.  He begins on Monday and will report to me, overseeing all national advertising sales for TIME. TIME continues to aggressively expand its digital chops, and it was very important to find someone with an exceptional digital IQ, tremendous industry relationships, a true understanding of the power of brands and the appreciation for the vitality of a winning culture. When I met Moritz, I knew I had found someone who embodied all of these qualities. He spent most of his working life at Microsoft across many purviews such as inside sales, product planning, strategic solutions and more recently as the General Manger Sales and Chief Agency Officer of MSNBC.com.  He then worked at AOL HuffPo as the SVP Sales before co-founding his own digital consulting company.  He is a true digital native, a loyal company guy, a lover of news and insightful content and a good man with a great sense of humor.  He lives in New Jersey with his wife and two children, and he is also an expert skier (watch out Tony Haskel). He is the right person to help usher TIME into the future.  His friends call him Mo, so please join me in welcoming Mo Loew.
