Sarah Chubb left Condé Nast as its digital president in February, but as the company tries to figure out its online future, it doesn’t seem eager to lose her online expertise—she’s been spotted at 4 Times Square recently.
Chubb had led Condé's digital strategy since 1996. But then the company turned over its magazine websites to their respective publishers, leaving her with just a few stand-alone digital brands, like Epicurious and Gourmet Live.
Reached for comment, Chubb confirmed she’s working with Andrew Siegel, the new M&A man for Condé Nast parent Advance Publications. Siegel was hired away from Yahoo to be senior vice president of strategy and corporate development for Advance, and he's said to be looking at digital investments and acquisitions. Chubb is a natural go-to for him, having worked at the company 20 years.
Outside Condé Nast, she's joined the advisory board of Readability, a digital app that converts articles into a clean reading view.
As for Condé Nast Digital, the company is believed to be close to naming Chubb’s successor.
