In his new role, Katzeff will lead the CNE team through its next phase of digital video growth and oversee the division’s film and television production slate. Katzeff will be based in New York and report to Bob Sauerberg, CEO of Condé Nast.
“We had incredible interest in this role from highly accomplished candidates with backgrounds ranging from traditional television and film to digital pureplays, but Oren stood out because of his unique insight, ability to create addictive content, and innovative operational expertise,” said Sauerberg. “Condé Nast has always discovered and nurtured the next generation of designers, photographers, writers and editors and in Oren, we see the future of our video business.”

“Condé Nast has a long history of building iconic brands and entertaining its audience with amazing storytelling,” said Katzeff. “I am excited about the opportunity to lead the team at such an inflection point for CNE’s growing video business, and to achieve continued greatness across the digital landscape.”
Leveraging Condé Nast’s iconic brands, CNE produces more than 5,000 digital videos annually, which average over a billion views per month and are distributed across an extensive network.
