Edward Menicheschi has been named chief marketing officer and president of Condé Nast. Menicheschi most recently served as Vanity Fair’s VP and publisher.
Menicheschi is succeeding Lou Cona, who is “leaving the company after many years of distinguished service,” wrote Robert Sauerberg, Condé’s president, in a memo announcing the change. “Lou has been an invaluable business partner and we wish him well.” Cona had been with Condé since 2008.
“Many of you have worked with Edward during his tenure here and are familiar with his deep understanding of our brands, audiences and advertisers,” added Sauerberg. “He will bring his considerable skills and experience to bear as we expand our advertising and marketing influence across all platforms.”
Condé is expected to name a new publisher for Vanity Fair soon.
