What Hearst is losing in outgoing chairwoman Cathie Black, it has gained in a pervading spirit of unbridled joy during sales meetings. Yesterday, the company’s president, marketing and publishing director Michael Clinton held an annual company-wide sales meeting with a very special theme: “Jump.” In order to make sure meeting-goers fully felt the spirit of the sales meeting, Clinton — joined by Hearst GM/EVP John Loughlin, Esquire VP/publisher Kevin O’Malley, Good Houskeeping SVP/publisher Pat Haegele, Cosmopolitan SVP/publisher Donna Lagani, and Marie Claire VP/publisher Nancy Berger Cardone performed Madonna’s single “Jump.”

Luckily, the good people at Hearst sent a couple pictures of the performers our way. We hope that you enjoy them thoroughly:
