Time Inc. has named former News Corp. comms exec Teri Everett EVP of corporate communications, effective March 5. Everett stepped down from her role at News Corp. – SVP of corporate affairs and communications — on February 10. She’d joined News Corp. in 2000. At the time her departure from News Corp. was announced, Everett said, “While it may be a tired cliche, I am ready for something new.”
At Time, she will manage all of the corporate communications for the company (from the employee comms to the company’s philanthropic endeavors), reporting to the company’s CEO Laura Lang.
Another of Murdoch’s News Corp. advisors, Gary Ginsburg, left the company two years ago to join Time Warner. And just a few weeks ago, News International’s marketing director Alex Lewis left for Warner Brothers in the U.K.
Over at CNN Worldwide, Lynn Brindell has been hired as SVP of marketing, working across all of the CNN brands to develop strategy, engage with audiences digitally, and perform other duties. Brindell’s previous experience includes branding, strategy, and digital marketing work for The Weather Channel, Food Network, and Lifetime Television.
