Teren tops Variety’s publisher Cahners

Gotham-based exec takes the lead Feb. 1

Reed Elsevier, parent company of Daily Variety, announced the appointment Thursday of Marc Teren as chief executive officer of Cahners Business Information, which publishes Daily Variety, among other publications.

Teren, who takes over Feb. 1 and will be based in New York, joins the company from the Washington Post where he was chief executive officer of Washingtonpost.Newsweek Interactive.

“We are delighted that Marc has agreed to join our senior management team and lead Cahners through the next phase of its development,” Reed Elsevier CEO Crispin Davis said in a statement Thursday. “With his background and experience in building businesses, products and brands, including on the Internet, he will make a major contribution to the continued successful development of our leading portfolio of content.”

During his time at the Washington Post, Teren led the company’s initiatives and strategic investments in new media and electronic publishing. He was responsible for the creation of new products and services for the company’s Internet sites and for the development of an award-winning Internet team.

Teren was also the driving force behind the Washington Post Co.’s alliance with MSNBC and NBC News.

“With Reed Elsevier and Cahners, I again have the opportunity to work with world-class brands and assets,” Teren said. “I am pleased to join a management team committed to winning and to building Cahners’ business-to-business leadership across the print and Internet sectors.”

Previously, Teren was with the Walt Disney Co. where he oversaw the development of that company’s newmedia strategy and the formation of Disney Interactive.

Teren will team with Cahners chief operating officer Brian Nairn to further the Cahners Business Information strategy. Nairn was interim CEO prior to Teren’s selection.
