Wenner Media, publisher of Rolling Stone, Men’s Journal and the recently launched Glixel, announced a number promotions on its business side that move employees from magazine-specific roles to ones across all of Wenner Media’s publications.

Michael Provus, previously chief revenue officer for Rolling Stone, will now be responsible for the ad sales and marketing teams of all three publications as he assumes the title of chief revenue officer of Wenner Media.

Jay Gallagher, previously chief revenue officer for Men’s Journal, has been named head of sales for Wenner Media, while Matt Habib, formerly executive director of digital advertising for Rolling Stone, is named head of digital sales of Wenner Media. Kerri Mackar moves from Rolling Stone’s head of marketing to head of marketing of Wenner Media.

“As we continue to transform and evolve our business, I look forward to greater collaboration between the advertising sales and marketing teams across all of our brands. This will enable further growth of the company and provide additional opportunities for advertisers,” said Wenner Media digital head Gus Wenner.
