Lindsay Nelson was promoted to Vox Media’s first chief commercial officer.

Vox Media just promoted Lindsay Nelson to its first chief commercial officer. Nelson was previously the company’s chief marketing officer, responsibilities she’ll keep in her new position.

“She has pushed the company to think big and aggressively about how we build brand equity and relevance, create products that drive business value for our advertising partners and enter new commercial spaces like branded content and Concert,” Jim Bankoff, CEO of Vox Media, said in a statement.

“I’ve had the privilege of having her bright mind at the table and am grateful for her leadership overseeing important lines of business for our company. I look forward to seeing where she’ll take Vox Media in this expanded role.”

There is no plan at this time to appoint a new CMO, a company spokeswoman said.

Nelson will oversee teams responsible for leading and executing revenue growth across the company’s advertising businesses, the company said, including sales, marketing, Vox Creative (branded content), Concert (digital advertising) and sponsorships.

Nelson has been at Vox for more than three years, during which time she oversaw the Recode conference business, launched Vox Media’s first brand campaign, “Go Deeper” and introduced a SXSW experiential platform called The Deep End.
