Sarah Chubb Leaving Condé Nast

Peter Kafka is reporting that Sarah Chubb, President of Condé Nast Digital, is leaving the company after 20 years. Chubb is apparently moving on to pursue other opportunities. Bob Sauerberg commented on her departure in a company-wide memo:

After a wonderful 20-year career at Condé Nast, Sarah Chubb has decided it’s time to explore other opportunities. As we all know, there is a huge amount of energy and excitement in the digital world right now—and Sarah is interested in pursuing the next phase of her career.

Sarah has been a transformational force at Condé Nast and the media business as a whole. I am sure you will all join me in thanking Sarah for her many valuable contributions, congratulating her on her success and wishing her the best of luck as she moves ahead.

Sarah asked me to share her thoughts with you: ‘CN is the premier company in the industry and I have truly loved my job here. I am also tremendously proud of the contributions that my team and I have made to the Company. While the challenges of an exciting new world beckon me, I know that CN is set up exceptionally well for the future.’

In the coming weeks, we will name a successor to continue the outstanding work in digital growth and innovation.

Condé Nast Continues To Shuffle Agenda And Execs

Another day, another big announcement from Condé Nast headquarters.  CEO Charles H. Townsend said today that his company will undergo a major overhaul in the sales and marketing departments.  A company press release indicated that Condé will task its individual titles to “focus on brand centricity and drive growth and innovation” by  adding digital sales and marketing to content management.  Publishers will now be responsible for branding initiatives across all platforms as the media giant continues to push their digital agenda.

CMO Lou Cona, who will oversee this transition, shared his enthusiasm for the endeavor:

“Condé Nast Digital brings tremendous power to the portfolio of assets we are able to offer the marketplace.  By integrating its sales and marketing expertise into the Media Group, we are positioned for maximum growth and are better aligned with the industry.”

Condé Nast Shaking Things Up On Digital Side

Earlier today, New York Post columnist Keith Kelly reported that Condé Nast is set to undergo a major restructuring in their digital operations.

Kelly writes that Condé Nast will merge the corporate print ad side with corporate digital ad sales in an effort to strengthen individual publications like Vogue.com.  The change is coming soon and one source believes it may be revealed prior to the next publishers’ meeting on Oct. 29.

The reshuffling will influence the workloads of some Condé’s higher-ups. Recently named chief technology officer, Joe Simon, will be called upon to direct Condé Nast’s digital strategy.  CMO of Condé Nast Media, Lou Cona, will have some increased responsibilities in addition to managing the big ad packages for print editions.  Head of Condé Nast Digital Sarah Chubb and senior VP and chief revenue officer at Condé Nast Digital will see their roles reduced following the reorganization.

Has Conde Nast Finally Seen the Internet Light?

voguenet.pngIs Conde Nast finally ready to set foot in the land called Internet? You will recall the company had a rough ride last November, all but shuttering Men’s Vogue and laying off more than three dozen staffers from CondeNet, its online division — a move which caused observers to ponder Conde’s “tortured relationship” with the Internet and habit of using its sites merely as a portal to sell more magazines. Well looks like this attitude may be getting an overhaul (and not a minute too soon!).

AdAge reports (full press release after the jump) that CondeNet is set to be eliminated altogether and that its functions (the aforementioned selling of ad space) will be consolidated, along with the rest of the company’s digital operations, under Conde Nast Digital, to be run by Sarah Chubb former president of CondeNet. Says one media buyer: “For the advertiser, this will help streamline the conversation to get the deals done in a more timely basis — one-stop shopping vs. multiple contact points.”
