Hearst UK extends remit of Luxury, Young Women’s and Health MDs
Hearst UK has broadened the remits of its Managing Director roles across Luxury, Young Women’s and Health brands to maximise collaboration between editorial content and commercial partners.
Ellie Austin scored a job at Immediate Media as a Features Writer for Radio Times after graduating from the Magazine Journalism MA course at City University. Here she talks about working in the fast-paced world of a major weekly magazine and the power of a good coffee.
Jacquie Euwe (pictured left), Managing Director, Luxury, will add publisher responsibilities for Harper’s Bazaar and Town & Country to her Luxury sector remit in order to further drive the commercial development of Hearst’s leading brands in this genre.
Jacqui Cave, Managing Director, Beauty, will take on publisher responsibilities for Hearst’s leading beauty brands, ELLE and Cosmopolitan, with the remit to support these editorial teams. This is in addition to her role of driving effective commercial synergies for beauty advertisers across all of Hearst’s media brands.
Alun Williams, Managing Director, Health and Fitness, will take on additional publisher responsibilities for Esquire, supporting the Health and Men’s Lifestyle editorial teams and facilitating more integrated commercial opportunities.
They will report to Hearst UK’s CEO, James Wildman. The changes will become effective in March when Duncan Chater, Chief Brand Officer, joins Hearst Magazines Digital Media as Global Vice President.
Commenting on the changes, Wildman said: “We are confident these organisational changes will deliver increased benefit generally and, in Jacquie, Alun and Jacqui, we have three of the very best publishers in the business to drive our multiple and extraordinary Luxury, Beauty and Health brands for our commercial partners.”
