(NEW YORK) Both Town & Country and W are welcoming new publishers into their glossy folds.
Lucy Kriz joins W as VP and publisher after a decade at Conde Nast, most recently in a senior executive sales director role at Conde, focused in categories that are key to W’s scope, including fashion and beauty. Kriz’s other Conde gigs have included associate publisher at Details and corporate fashion director at Conde Nast Media Group. Kriz fills the void left by Nina Lawrence’s surprising departure earlier this month from W, a position Lawrence had held since 2005, for The Wall Street Journal.
A bit further northwest, Town & Country's newest masthead resident, Jennifer Levene Bruno, is hopping over from one Hearst title to another to become publisher and chief revenue officer of the mag, effective October 29. Bruno has held the same title at Veranda since August 2010, prior to which she was associate publisher at House Beautiful. She succeeds Valerie Salembier, who left T&C in September after 16 months on the job (and a total of 16 years at various Hearst publications, including seven spent at Harper’s Bazaar). “[Bruno’s] knowledge, paired with Editor in Chief Jay Fielden’s eye for elegant images and stylish writing, is a recipe for innovation and growth,” said Michael Clinton, president, marketing and publishing director at Hearst. “Town & Country will be the one to watch in 2013.” Before House Beautiful, Bruno was advertising director at Glamour, and formerly did stints in sales and marketing at Time Inc. and Hachette Filipacchi Media titles.
