As president of Conde Nast Entertainment since 2011, she oversees the video content for many of the magazines Conde Nast publishes, including Vogue, Vanity Fair, Glamour, GQ and Wired. This year alone, she said, Conde Nast Entertainment has introduced more than 100 digital-video series. Continue reading at AdAge.com Continue reading at 'Advertising Age'
