THAT DIDN’T TAKE LONG: A little over a week after Time Inc. tapped Meredith Corp.’s Jack Griffin to succeed Ann Moore as chief executive officer, the executive shuffle has begun. On Tuesday, the company said Sylvia Auton, executive vice president, will be returning to the U.K. to resume her role as ceo of IPC Media. Auton came to Time Inc. two years ago from IPC to start the company’s lifestyle group, home to Real Simple, Health, Cooking Light and Southern Living, among others. Current IPC ceo Evelyn Webster will move to the U.S. to take over the lifestyle division as executive vice president, effective Jan. 1. No doubt this is only the first of many changes to come under Griffin. — A.W.
