The Atlantic Names Bill Mulvihill Associate Publisher

The Atlantic today named Vanity Fair’s national advertising director Bill Mulvihill its next associate publisher. The last person in the role was Hayley Romer who currently serves as Atlantic publisher and VP.

In that role, he’ll lead its global sales team and advertising across platforms.

“The Atlantic is a brand I’ve long admired, and joining the team feels like a dream career move,” said Mulvihill in the announcement. “It has evolved into a multi-platform category leader that isn’t afraid to challenge the status quo and is leading the way in “best in class” content and brand marketing programs.”

Prior to joining VF, Mulvihill served as the East Coast advertising director for Entertainment Weekly, and has been in sales for The Week, Cookie magazine, and The Chicago Tribune.

In July, The Atlantic announced record growth for newsstand sales and website traffic.
