New Yorker magazine publisher Drew Schutte is being moved over by Condé Nast execs to serve as the first chief revenue officer of Condé Nast Digital, the company said. CN Digital is the reformed and expanded unit from the CondéNet online sales unit last month. Schutte will manage all sales and marketing for CN Digital. He’ll report to Sarah Chubb, the interactive sales unit’s president, a rep told paidContent. It’s not surprising that the move was made within the company. Both the print side and the digital side have experienced across the board staff cuts in the past three months. Last week, Condé Nast decided to shutter the home shelter mag Domino and laid off more employees.
Schutte became VP/publisher of The New Yorker a little more than two years ago. Before that, he was VP/publishing director for CN’s Wired Media. He had been with the tech mag since 1994, starting as west coast ad manager. Schutte also did stints at Business Week, PC Week and Inc. As part of the shuffle that brought Schutte to CN Digital, Lisa Hughes is being shifted from Condé Nast Traveler and will take on the publisher post as the New Yorker. A replacement for Hughes has not been announced, though the WSJ cites unidentified sources who suggest Details publisher Steven DeLuca is a likely candidate.
