No doubt about it, Hearst Corp. has been busy hiring, promoting and bringing on new people. Abigail Pesta moved from deputy director to editor-at-large for Marie Claire last month, four executives joined the board of directors in October and former investment banker Mitchell Scherzer was appointed as a new VP and CFO of the company in early November.
So it’s no surprise that the company, which did make some cuts this year along with everyone else, is continuing to hire from within. Today, Hearst announced that Sophia Stuart — who most recently worked as executive director for mobile content for Hearst Magazines Digital Media — would be moving on up to executive director of digital content for Hearst Magazines International.
Says Stuart, “I have enjoyed my time working with Hearst’s domestic magazine brands on mobile expansion, and look forward to working with [HMI's president and CEO Duncan Edwards] and his team to bring new ideas and relationships to our many magazine partnerships internationally. There’s enormous potential in the digital space and I hope to be able to leverage those opportunities.”

Scherzer joins the magazine publisher after working in financial services and M&A for more than two decades. He most recently served as a managing director of The Silverfern Group, where he headed up the merchant banking firm’s media and communications business. Scherzer spent 13 years at Goldman Sachs focusing on mergers and acquisitions and media, then went on to lead JP Morgan’s U.S. Media Investment Banking team for five years before joining Silverfern.
After taking over his new post on November 16, we’ll wait to see if Scherzer’s M&A experience will help Hearst expand or sell off titles.
