Well that was fast.

0ce9acdPerhaps the Association of Magazine Media (MPA) heard us. Minutes after we pondered who would replace Mary Berner as president, the organization announced that Linda Thomas Brooks was taking on the role.

As we noted earlier, Thomas Brooks previously worked for GM’s ad agency GM MediaWorks and The Martin Agency.

“We believe Linda brings the exact skills and leadership we need, and look forward to her aggressively evangelizing and expanding these cutting-edge tools and solutions in the media and advertising marketplace,” said MPA chairman and Meredith CEO Stephen Lacy, in a statement.

Thomas Brooks’ appointment is effective immediately.
