Additional staffing changes at Condé Nast are afoot nearly a year after executives said Condé Nast and Condé Nast International would combine forces.

In a restructuring, Pamela Drucker Mann, will be Condé’s global chief revenue officer and president of U.S. revenue. Drucker Mann was CMO under previous CEO Bob Sauerberg, whose departure from Condé was publicly announced at the time of the merger in November 2018. Since then, the company has seen other top-level changes, including the creation of a global CEO role, which Roger Lynch, formerly the CEO of Pandora, assumed in April.

“I’m excited about what we will do together—for our clients and for our company. We have incredible potential on a global scale,” Drucker Mann said in a staff memo today.

A new, so-called “global commercial partnerships team” will include many current Condé employees but with new titles. That includes current CRO at Condé Nast International Jamie Jouning, who will now be chief client officer leading global sales. Taly Yaniv, who previously oversaw revenue operations for the Australia and New Zealand markets at Pandora, will become svp of global client services and will manage global accounts from ideation to execution. John Deschner, previously the chief innovation officer and managing director at TBWA\Chiat\Day L.A., assumes the role of managing director of CNX, Condé’s creative agency. Craig Kostelic, chief business officer, advertising, will oversee the video business internationally and continue to oversee enterprise and digital operation teams in the U.S. And Eric Johnson, svp, commercial marketing and events, will expand his position to oversee a unified business-to-business strategy.

“As we continue our evolution into a global media company, we have an incredible opportunity to create more holistic, global partnerships with our clients,” Drucker Mann said in a statement.
