Paul Caine Hires Condé Nast Exec

Christina Albee was gm of the Media Group

Ex-Time Inc. CRO Paul Caine isn't wasting time raiding other media companies as he bolsters his staff at Dial Global, the audio content syndicator he joined as CEO in March.

In his first major hire, he tapped Christina Albee as chief marketing officer, a new position at the company. Albee comes from Condé Nast, where she helped run The Studio, a digital ad unit, and where she also served as gm of the marketing arm of the Condé Nast Media Group.

It was at Time Inc. where Albee and Caine got to know each other. They worked together at the publisher for nearly 15 years, Albee at über magazine brand People and on a variety of launches including its spinoff Teen People, InStyle and All You.  

"One of our first priorities is reinforcing the importance of our many talented departments across the company," Caine said in announcing the hire. "Our goal is to unify, to nurture and to strengthen those teams."
