Jon Werther Is Out at Meredith After 3 Years as President | People on the Move

[caption id="attachment_160093" align="alignright" width="150"] Jon Werther[/caption] National Media Group president Jon Werther is out at Meredith Corp. after seven years with the company, effective immediately. In a statement from president and CEO Tom Harty, he said that there aren’t any immediate plans to fill the vacancy, and that the senior leadership team will now report directly to him. Werther joined Meredith in 2012 as chief strategy officer and later took on the role of president for Meredith Digital in 2013, before landing in his final position with the company in 2016. Prior to Meredith, he served as president of marketing and advertising company Simulmedia, and also held several executive-level roles at AOL and Time Warner, Inc. Though a direct explanation about why Werther was leaving the company wasn’t shared, Harty said in the statement, "As we close our fiscal 2019 and enter fiscal 2020 next month, I think this is a good time to pivot and assess where we are and what steps need to be taken to build upon our momentum, including the optimum leadership structure to drive organic revenue growth.” Here are the rest of this week's people on the move...
