Carrig will act as a strategic counselor and advisor to Lynch and senior leadership, working closely with communications and brand teams around the world to advance the company’s global narrative and growth priorities. Carrig’s appointment completes the formation of Lynch’s global executive leadership team, having previously announced the appointments of a Global Chief People Officer, Chief Financial Officer and Chief Marketing Officer at the end of 2019. Carrig will begin her new role on May 26.
“Danielle is a seasoned global communications executive with extensive media, entertainment and digital content experience, and a strong network of media relationships,” said Lynch. “At this pivotal time for our company, I’m thrilled to have her as a strategic partner as we work to transform and grow our business.”
Carrig joins Condé Nast from Vice Media Group where she most recently led all communications strategy worldwide for the youth media company, as its global chief communications officer. Prior to Vice, Carrig led teams at Netflix responsible for visual communications, events, public relations and talent relations. She drove creative strategies to amplify awareness of the streaming media company's global brand, talent and content, including both scripted and unscripted TV series, documentaries and feature films.
"While the media industry, and our world, are going through such change and disruption, it’s a privilege to join a team and company always rising to the top as a voice of purpose and connection,” said Carrig. “The future of information and entertainment is in our hands and I look forward to working with our teams worldwide to help define all that media can and will be together.”
