Veteran exec has long history at media conglom

Time Warner elevated Karen Magee, its chief human resources officer, to executive vice president and set her reporting line into the company’s chairman and chief executive, Jeff Bewkes.

The appointment is set to take place January 1, 2014.

Magee had previously been a senior veep and chief human resources officer and reported into John K. Martin, the company’s chief financial officer and chief administrative officer. Martin is set to become chief executive of the company’s Turner TV-network unit as of the first of next year.

“Over the last several years Karen has provided results-oriented leadership in human resources, working with our top executives across the business units to better define, measure and achieve success,” Bewkes said in a prepared statement. “Karen’s efforts have helped to create a workplace environment that attracts and motivates high-caliber talent, which in turn enables us to develop and distribute great television, film and journalism content that is valued by audiences worldwide.”

Magee has a long history with the company. One of her earliest jobs was as an analyst at Time magazine, part of the company’s Time Inc. magazine unit that is about to be spun off. She rose through the ranks to become senior veep of strategic planning. She joined Time Warner’s corporate management group in 2001. Between 2006 and 2009, she was the chief executive officer of PlanetOut Inc., a publicly traded media and entertainment company based in San Francisco.

In 2010, Magee rejoined Time Warner as senior veep, administration and shared services. In that role, she spearheaded a company-wide focus on improving the efficiency of support services in such areas as real estate and information technology.
