In a statement to the Times, a company spokeswoman explained that his “relentless pursuit of excellence was at times combined with a brash demeanor that rubbed some the wrong way," but added that he had "worked to develop a more inclusive management style" since his promotion from digital chief to global president of Hearst Magazines in 2018. At least four employees had complained to the company's human resources department about Young's behavior prior to that promotion, the Times reported. Young himself appeared defiant in the Times story, attributing the allegations to "my detractors" and insisting they were "either untrue, greatly exaggerated or taken out of context." In a subsequent memo to staff Thursday, he said that while he felt the article, which also... Continue reading at 'Folio Magazine'
