It’s the first real day of spring in New York City, and David Carey, the 50-year-old president of Hearst Magazines, is in a perpetual state of motion. He has just returned from the company’s “leadership conference” in Washington, D.C., and is leaving tomorrow for a quarterly meeting with its subsidiary in London. Even in this brief moment of rest, he’s on the edge of his seat.
From Carey’s corner office at the top of Hearst Tower—a 46-story architectural gem on Manhattan’s west side—he has an immediate view of the Time Warner building, just one block away and a few stories higher.
