Nancy Cardone Pushes Marie Claire to The Top

Nancy Cardone, Publisher for Marie Claire, gets a lot of love from Hearst’s CMO Michael Clinton in a MIN online report. He says the addition of Cardone has lead to nothing but good things:

This is a major home-run for the company. MC had our largest ad-page and ad-revenue growths last year. Most impressive to me is how well Nancy teams up with [Editor-in-Chief since May 2005] Joanna Coles. They are always coming up with innovative ideas, and I see 2011 being equally exciting.

The numbers Clinton mentions certainly stand out. Ad pages for Marie Claire were up almost 20 percent and revenue was up about 23 percent during Cardone’s first year overseeing the magazine.

It looks like Cardone and Marie Claire have a bright future, just as long as they avoid more fat bashing.
