Parade Publications Announces Four Promotions

Jack Haire, President and CEO of Parade Publications, has announced four promotions, effective immediately. Brett Wilson has been named Group Publisher of Parade Publications, Mike DeBartolo is now Executive Vice President, Publisher of Parade, Kristen Fairback has been tapped as Senior Vice President of Parade Digital and Tracey Altman is the new Senior Vice President, Publisher of dash.

Haire said this about the moves:

Each of these talented individuals has brought to Parade creativity, enthusiasm, ingenuity and a work ethic that can’t be beat. 2010 was a significant year for us, and this reorganization is designed with an eye toward continued growth.  We could not have achieved this level of success or look ahead to further innovations without the efforts of these fine executives.

We know you’re still reading looking for a cheesy “parade” pun but it’s not going to happen.

First On FBNY: Parade Editor Janice Kaplan Out

Screen shot 2010-02-03 at 11.23.12 AM.pngFishbowlNY has learned that Parade‘s editor-in-chief, Janice Kaplan has left the magazine.

Although a good-bye memo to staff seemed to suggest that Kaplan is leaving the weekly magazine on good terms, we have heard that she was asked to leave. The change at the top of the masthead comes after Parade‘s owner Condé Nast appointed a new CEO, Jack Haire, back in April. Since then, the magazine has lost its president, Randy Siegel, who left to run local digital strategy for parent company Advance Publications last month and got a new publisher, Brett Wilson this fall.

Kaplan, an author and former deputy editor at TV Guide magazine, joined Parade four years ago as executive editor and took over the role of editor-in-chief two years ago.

In her letter to her staff, Kaplan praised Parade‘s growth in the years since she’s been in charge, highlighting its celebrity coverage, increase medical coverage, and high profile guest writers. She also talked about the magazine’s expansion into other platforms, including TV and the Web. “Leaving now, I extend my warm thanks to everyone who contributed to our many triumphs,” she said, adding: “I’m disappointed not to have the opportunity to continue this great run. But I wish all of you — and Parade — continued success.”
