More changes are afoot within the Hearst Design Group since the restructuring was announced earlier this month. Publisher and chief revenue officer of Veranda since August 2010, Jennifer Levene Bruno has been named publisher and chief revenue officer of Town & Country. She succeeds Valerie Salembier, who previously announced she will be leaving at the end of the year.
“Town & Country is an iconic, time-endured luxury brand. It embraces the world of the well-lived and well informed," Bruno said. “The magazine has seen great success this year and I look forward to building more excitement around this incredible brand with Jay Fielden and the entire Town & Country team.”
“Jennifer has a depth of experience and valuable relationships with luxury marketers across all categories: jewelry, fashion, home, beauty, automotive and more,” said Michael A. Clinton, president, marketing and publishing director, Hearst Magazines. “Her knowledge, paired with Editor in Chief Jay Fielden’s eye for elegant images and stylish writing, is a recipe for innovation and growth. Town & Country will be the one to watch in 2013.”
At Veranda, Bruno has increased ad pages to 17 percent year-to-date, following a 17 percent increase in 2011. Additionally, Veranda has welcomed more than 150 new brands during Bruno’s tenure.
Prior to joining Veranda, Bruno was associate publisher of House Beautiful. Before that, she was advertising director at Glamour and held various sales and marketing roles at Time Inc. and Hachette Filipacchi Media.
The new publisher and chief revenue officer of Veranda has yet to be named.
