Time Inc. Promotes, Creates New Groups

Big moves at Time Inc. today. Romenesko is reporting that the company promoted Mark Ford to Executive Vice President and President of the new Sports Group, and John Q. Griffin to Executive Vice President and President of the just created News Group. Additionally, Kim Kelleher is now Time magazine’s Publisher, and Frank Wall is Publisher of Sports Illustrated. Both Ford and Griffin will report directly to Time Inc. CEO Jack Griffin.

Ford will be overseeing new product initiatives, SI.com and other online ventures, while John Griffin will be in charge of Time, Fortune, their respective websites and their international editions.

The new positions all become effective January 3rd, but we don’t expect that to keep their kids from asking for bigger holiday presents.
