Time Inc. Int’l taps Pepe prexy, CEO

Exec to o'see global magazine publishing activities

Michael Pepe, who left his post in February as president and chief operating officer of Time Warner Digital Media, has been tapped prexy and CEO of Time Inc. Intl.

As expected, Pepe will oversee Time Inc.’s global magazine publishing activities out of London (Daily Variety, Feb. 22). He will report to Don Logan, chairman and CEO of Time Inc.

Marty Gardner, prexy of Time Inc. South Pacific in Australia, and Hugh Wiley, prexy of Time Inc. Latin America, will now report to Pepe.

Pepe will soon name a president of Time Atlantic (in which Time’s magazine publishing activities in Europe, Middle East and Africa are gathered together) and a prexy of Time Inc. Asia.

‘Exceptionally talented’

“Michael is a broad-gauged, exceptionally talented publishing executive,” Logan said. “He’s also a proven leader with a solid track record of success. I’m certain that he’ll do an outstanding job as head of our international operations.”

Pepe joined Time Warner Digital Media as chief operating officer last June when the media giant opted to redirect its Internet efforts, shuttering Pathfinder.com and creating five hubs to focus on news, finance, sports, entertainment and lifestyle. The first to launch was Entertaindom.com.

When he stepped down in February, Pepe was expected to stay with the company in some capacity with Time Inc.’s international division after John Marcom exited the post and joined Netcaster AtomFilms.

Pepe joined Time Inc. in 1986 as People magazine’s director of strategic planning and development before becoming the magazine’s production director, promotion and marketing director and general manager.

He was also veep of marketing for Time Inc., prexy of Business Information Group and prexy of Time Warner E-Commerce.
