Memo Pad: Pat On The Back... Next In Line.. Hearst Hires

While it couldn't be said, strictly speaking, that the first-ever Tower awards given out by Hearst Magazines president Cathie Black on Tuesday offered a gold star for every student .

The new managing editor joined parent company Dow Jones in 1984 as a national copyreader with AP-Dow Jones, and went on to work as a foreign correspondent in Hong Kong, Tokyo and Scandinavia. Brauchli returned to New York in 1999 and served as news editor, national news editor and global news editor, before becoming deputy managing editor in December 2005. — Stephanie D. Smith

Heather Pfaff, a freelance stylist, will join Cosmopolitan as senior fashion editor on Monday. She will replace Brooke Elder, who left on "good terms" and now is a freelancer. For more than six years, Pfaff has worked for In Style, Glamour, Self, Marie Claire and O, The Oprah Magazine. She also worked for the defunct Mademoiselle as senior fashion editor.

Seventeen has also initiated several changes to the masthead, including one new hire and five promotions. Lucy Fox is the title's new features director; she formerly produced shoots for photo agency Exposure and also served as photo editor at Town & Country Weddings. And among the promotions, executive style director Joanna Saltz is now executive editor and associate photo editor Alana Anesh has the new title of photo editor.

As for news outside of Hearst Tower, Shop Etc. vice president and publisher Cynthia Lewis has reappeared after the Hearst shopping title folded last September. Lewis on Tuesday was named president of Latina Media Ventures, publisher of Latina, and will oversee the company as it attempts to expand its media footprint across multiple platforms. Lewis spent more than a decade with Hearst, including as vice president and publisher of both Marie Claire and Harper's Bazaar. Lewis will join Peter Glusker, who was named ceo at Latina on Tuesday. The magazine, which has a circulation of 400,000, is the second-largest title targeted at Hispanics behind Time Inc.'s 475,000 circulation People en Español. — Amy Wicks
