SAFE LANDINGS: Condé Nast Kremlinologists were eager to draw lines between the closure of House & Garden and the frequency increase of Vogue Living to two times a year — although House & Garden had more than enough woes on its own. And, at the very least, some of the shelter experience at House & Garden won't go unused at the company, which also owns WWD. Susan Egan, who was national home furnishings director at House & Garden, will now serve in a similar capacity at Vogue Living, working with its new publisher and Vogue associate publisher, Connie Anne Phillips. Another ad-side staffer, Ahu Terzi, has also joined the Vogue family as an account director at Men's Vogue. On the edit side, three junior staffers formerly at House & Garden have found a home in Vogue's fashion closet. Former House & Garden staff from editorial and advertising have landed at other Condé Nast titles like Brides, W, Bon Appetit, and Golf Digest.

MONEY MANAGER: Hachette Filipacchi Media pulled an executive from its parent company's French offices to replace outgoing chief financial officer Antoine de Noyer. The company on Thursday named Philippe Perthuis as the U.S. division's new senior vice president-chief financial officer. Perthuis was most recently deputy director of finance for Lagardère Active in Paris. Perthuis will take his new position Saturday. Noyer leaves the company after just over a year at his post.
