'Time' Names Brendan Ripp Publisher

Time magazine has named Brendan Ripp publisher, filling a post that’s been held by Mark Ford, president and publisher of the news group.
 
Ripp was vp of sales for Time magazine; in his new role, he’ll add oversight for digital sales for Time.com and Life.com. He’ll report to Ford, who stepped into the role after Donald Fries left as publisher a little more than a year ago in the wake of a Time Inc.-wide reorganization.
 
In a staff announcement, Ford said that the formal integration of Time’s print and digital sales will help the brand respond faster to clients’ changing needs and maintain Time’s leadership position.
