Hearst needs to expand! After RealBeauty.com and Delish.com’s traffic pumped up Hearst’s digital traffic as a whole, the Digital Media division really needed to add some staff, digital media GM Chuck Cordray told Folio.
So with that in mind, a number of new hires/promotions/reorgs:
Julie Hocheiser, previously senior web editor for the Hearst Teen Network, was made site director for Seventeen.com; Neha Gandhi joins Seventeen.com as a web editor from the print magazine.
Lizzie Dunlap, former assistant beauty and health editor for Marie Claire, is now a web editor for RealBeauty.com.
Andrew Moseman, who had been an online writer with Discover magazine, is now web editor for PopularMechanics.com.
Dawn Davis and Paul Schrodt, both previously freelancers, have been asked to join Cosmopolitan.com and Esquire.com, respectively, as staff.
Laura Schooling is now director of marketing services, promoted from director of marketing strategy; Deepali Kakar joins as lead UX designer.
