A Condé/Hearst Publishing Swap

Comments | | Print

(NEW YORK) In a recent Condé Nast reorganization, Marie Claire’s Susan Plagemann was named Vogue’s new publisher, departing Hearst Tower for 4 Times Square. So when it came time for Hearst to find a new Marie Claire publisher, it seems fitting that the candidate is a longtime Condé alum: Nancy Berger Cardone, the former vice president/publisher of Gourmet, which closed in October. Cardone was named the new vice president and publisher of the Joanna Coles-helmed Hearst glossy (effective December 7), where she will report to Michael A. Clinton, executive vice president, chief marketing officer, and publishing director of Hearst Magazines.

“I am excited for this new chapter in my career and look forward to working with Joanna Coles and the Marie Claire executive team,” Cardone said in a statement. “The magazine is in a great place and I look forward to building on its success.” Cardone’s time at Condé Nast goes back further than her Gourmet days; she served as vice president and publisher of Allure from 2001 until 2008, launching Allure Bride and Allure Spa, and spent time at Vanity Fair after being hired as a senior salesperson at Gourmet in 1989.

Marie Claire is perfectly positioned for continued success in the beauty and fashion business,” Clinton said in a statement. “We know that Nancy will further build on the brand’s strengths and progress over the last three years.”
