Meredith Promotes Two to Succeed Grune as VP, Licensing | People on the Move

[caption id="attachment_144315" align="alignright" width="150"] Steve Grune[/caption] Meredith Corp.'s VP of brand licensing, Steve Grune, is stepping down after 18 months in that role and eight years with the company overall. He'll be succeeded by Toye Cody and Sondra Newkirk, who have each been promoted to VP from executive directors in the brand licensing division. Cody and Newkirk will split duties, with Cody continuing to lead the Walmart account, serving Walmart.com and 4,000 stores with Better Homes & Gardens-branded products. Overseeing all other brand licensing business, Newkirk will manage roughly 35 partnerships across 11 Meredith brands. Grune was first at Meredith from 1999 to 2000, when he was publisher of Midwest Living, before spending nine years at Hearst Magazines as VP and publisher of Country Living. After three years at Bonnier Corp., he rejoined Meredith in 2013 as founding publisher of Allrecipes magazine before taking over Meredith's Parents Network as VP and group publisher in 2016. He moved atop the brand licensing division in 2018. A Meredith rep says Grune is stepping down to "pursue new interests" and spend more time with his family. Cody first joined the company in 2004, having held various positions within Meredith Books, while Newkirk has been with Meredith since 2006 in different roles within the brand licensing division. Both have served as executive director since 2018. “Toye and Sondra are seasoned professionals with deep brand... Continue reading at 'Folio Magazine'
