ANOTHER CHIEF: Condé Nast added to its fast growing c-suite on Wednesday with the promotion of human resources head Jill Bright to chief administrative officer. In an e-mail to employees that described the move, chief executive officer Chuck Townsend and president Robert Sauerberg presented the post as something of a bureaucratic catchall from which Bright will oversee “organizational effectiveness” and give “guidance on people, productivity and alignment,” among other duties. The position will also give Bright domain over the corporate communications department, where chief communications officer Maurie Perl had previously reported directly to Townsend. Bright’s promotion is another step in an executive facelift that began at the company earlier this year when Townsend relinquished the president’s title to Sauerberg. The company has also promoted Louis Cona to chief marketing officer and brought on Joe Simon as chief technology officer.
