Time Out hunts group chief for integration effort

TimeOut%20London%20magazineTime Out is seeking its first group chief executive as part of a move to bring together its divisions and co-ordinate their activities.

The company currently separates the magazine, online, travel guides and international publications, and each one has its own managing director. The new role aims to bring the divisions, as well as its US business, together to work more closely.

Time Out group marketing director John Luck left the company last November (MW November 29) after three years in the role. It has since scrapped the role and handed Catherine Demajo, head of magazine marketing, responsibility for group marketing.

Prior to joining Time Out, Luck spent four and a half years at Coca-Cola, where he was part of a senior brand team. He also spent four years at Premier Foods, where he was senior brand manager for Typhoo Tea.

The Time Out Group was founded 40 years ago and publishes destination guides to world top cities, ranking the best restaurants, hotels, and tourist sights in more than 100 locations.

The Time Out Group also publishes 23 international weekly magazines, such as Time Out New York, Time Out London and Time Out Chicago. The company is led by chairman Tony Elliott.
