Edward Menicheschi Named CMO of Condé Nast

Edward Menicheschi has been named chief marketing officer and president of Condé Nast. Menicheschi most recently served as Vanity Fair’s VP and publisher.

Menicheschi is succeeding Lou Cona, who is “leaving the company after many years of distinguished service,” wrote Robert Sauerberg, Condé’s president, in a memo announcing the change. “Lou has been an invaluable business partner and we wish him well.” Cona had been with Condé since 2008.

“Many of you have worked with Edward during his tenure here and are familiar with his deep understanding of our brands, audiences and advertisers,” added Sauerberg. “He will bring his considerable skills and experience to bear as we expand our advertising and marketing influence across all platforms.”

Condé is expected to name a new publisher for Vanity Fair soon.

Condé Nast Promotes Execs, Awards Top Publishers

lou cona.jpgJust over three months after a massive restructuring, Condé Nast seems to be well on the way to recovery — if the announcement of three executive promotions and publishers’ awards doled out last night at an annual Florida meeting are any indication.

mittman.jpgToday, we learned of three promotions within the company. Lou Cona (pictured at right), senior VP of the Condé Nast Media Group, has been promoted to executive vice president of the group, while publishers Laura McEwan of Teen Vogue and Howard Mittman of Wired (at right) have been given the additional titles of vice president.

“And in perhaps an indication, if not a wholehearted endorsement, of where the publishing world’s future lies, Townsend looked beyond the usual suspects for Publisher of the Year, giving the honor to Drew Schutte, chief revenue officer of Condé Nast Digital, who oversees such digital properties as newyorker.com, luckymag.com and glamour.com, which saw significant revenue growth over 2008. The Corporate Executive of the Year prize went to Robert Sauerberg, president of Condé Nast Consumer Marketing.”

Sauerberg has been working on the digital publishing consortium between several magazine publishers, including Condé, Hearst, Time Inc., Meredith and News Corp., and has been seeking other forms of revenue for the company, including licensing agreements.

After the jump, the official announcement from Condé Nast about the three promotions.
