Travel + Leisure Names Digital Ad Director

Travel + Leisure has named Venus Ferrer its new Digital Ad Director. Ferrer was most recently with Hachette Filipacchi Media as its Senior Director of Strategic Alliances. She joined Hachette in 2007 and during her time there she managed digital marketing for high profile sites such as elle.com and womansday.com.

Jean-Paul Kyrillos, Travel + Leisure’s Vice President and Publisher, is excited about what Ferrer brings to the brand.

“I’m thrilled to welcome Venus to the Travel + Leisure team,” said Kyrillos. “With over 14 years of experience in digital media, she brings a wealth of knowledge to T+L at a time of rapid growth — TravelandLeisure.com generated record-breaking traffic in October with more than 32 million page views and over 2.4 million unique visitors. I’m confident Venus will continue to lead our digital products to further success.”
