Variety associate publisher Charles Koones is taking on the additional role of publisher of Variety’s On Production, effective immediately.
Koones will be responsible for all business operations of VOP.
Former VOP publisher Jerry Brandt segues to the consulting position of executive publisher, in which he’ll oversee circulation, marketing and sales development. Brandt, who reports to Koones, continues as a consultant to the Reed Exhibition Cos.
Variety vice president and publisher Gerry Byrne said, “This move represents an appropriate strategic next step, propelling the further success of VOP into an important niche of the marketplace.”
