Jonathan Newhouse and Steve Newhouse and the Condé Nast Board
Over the past year, Condé Nast and Condé Nast International have been working together more closely than ever to refine growth strategies, accelerate innovation and develop the right organisational structures to ensure the company’s success in a rapidly evolving media landscape.
Our brands have worldwide influence and impact, and our business is increasingly becoming more global, and we are organising the company to reflect that.
To realise the full potential of Condé Nast - for our audiences and our business partners - the time is right for the US and International companies to truly function as one company.
We’ve launched a search for a CEO with global experience to run Condé Nast.
Once this CEO is hired, Jonathan Newhouse will become chairman of the board of directors and will relinquish his position as CEO of CNI. Bob Sauerberg will continue as CEO of Condé Nast/US until the transition is completed, and then will leave to pursue other opportunities. Other members of the senior operating management teams, including Wolfgang Blau as president of the international division, will remain in their positions.
Operating as one global company will only help us realise our ambition to deliver the highest quality journalism, experiences and value to our audiences, advertisers and partners. It will also create new opportunities to enhance the collaboration among colleagues around the world.
During the transition, it will be business as usual and we will continue to pursue our strategic plans and growth initiatives.
Condé Nast and Condé Nast International are members of FIPP.
