Conde Nast Entertainment Taps Jennifer Salant to Lead Biz Dev

Conde Nast Entertainment has named Jennifer Salant, previously with Mode Media, as VP of business development for the digital video network.

In her new role, Salant will be responsible for leading CNÉ’s business development team and overseeing distribution and syndication strategy, content licensing for The Scene video channel, talent and production deals, and other strategic partner development.

She reports to Joy Marcus, executive VP and G.M. of digital video of Conde Nast Entertainment, who joined the company in May after heading Dailymotion. Last month, Marcus hired Nathan Guetta, formerly with Samsung and Dailymotion, to lead product.

Salant replaces Christopher Willey, who has joined Defy Media in a senior development role.

“Jennifer has an impressive track record developing strategic partnerships and growth for digital companies like Mode Media,” Marcus said in a statement. “That experience, combined with her strong industry relationships, will play a critical role as we grow The Scene’s content offerings and distribution across all screens.”

At female-focused media company Mode Media (formerly Glam Media), Salant was senior VP of content creator business development and operations. Before that, she was a VP at NBCUniversal’s iVillage. Salant holds a bachelor’s degree in applied economics and business management from Cornell U.

CNÉ’s video network includes 19 brand channels and The Scene, which includes nearly 40 channels from Conde Nast brands and partners. The group has produced more than 4,000 original videos that have generated more than 2.7 billion views annually since launching in 2013. (Disclosure: Variety has a deal with CNÉ for The Scene.)
