Hearst Magazines has named Mark Gompertz creative director, content extensions. Gompertz was most recently a consultant/project manager and producer for enhanced eBooks, where he worked with corporations and private clients. Prior to that Gompertz was with Simon & Schuster for 17 years.

“Mark has deep experience in the areas of e-publishing, multimedia experimentation and finding new revenue streams for great content — all of which translate remarkably well to content extension opportunities for our brands at Hearst,” said John Loughlin, executive vice president and general manager of Hearst Magazines. “We have a number of exciting projects in the works and I’m confident that Mark will not only execute on those brilliantly but also bring an abundance of new ideas to the table.”
