Moritz Loew has been named Time’s new vice president of sales. Loew comes to the magazine from his own consulting company. Prior to that he was senior vice president of sales for The Huffington Post. Loew was fired from HuffPost after a background check turned up an arrest warrant regarding a DWI.
“Time continues to aggressively expand its digital chops, and it was very important to find someone with an exceptional digital IQ, tremendous industry relationships, a true understanding of the power of brands and the appreciation for the vitality of a winning culture,” wrote Jed Hartman, Time Inc.’s news and business group publisher, in a memo to staffers. “When I met Moritz, I knew I had found someone who embodied all of these qualities.”
