Time Inc, a division of AOL Time Warner, has appointed the marketing director of Fortune Asia Pacific, Stan Stalnaker, as marketing director for Fortune Group Europe. Stalnaker will be responsible for marketing, advertising and brand communication across Europe, the Middle East, Russia and Africa (EMEA).
The position was created following the departure of Fortune marketing manager EMEA Stephanie Trainer. A spokeswoman for Time Inc says that Trainer left the company to pursue other opportunities.
