(NEW YORK) Hearst Corp. has added another title to its C-suite, promoting internally for its new senior vice president and chief creative officer position. Neeraj Khemlani, formerly executive VP and deputy group head at Hearst Entertainment & Syndication, has been tapped for the title. The gig's breadth will entail dealing with digital as well as print matters at Hearst; in his new capacity, Khemlani will work with managers, group heads, and creative teams. Khemlani will now work with Hearst SVP and chief technology officer Phil Wiser. While the focus of Khemlani's upgraded role encompasses the company's expansive print offerings, his most recent title at Hearst concerned nonfiction production on the TV front. Khemlani first arrived at Hearst three years ago with the title of VP and special assistant to the digital media CEO, coming off stints at Yahoo News and Information (as VP and general manager), Yahoo Originals, as well as 60 Minutes and 60 Minutes II, in the capacity of producer.
