Condé Nast Chief Revenue Officer Steps Down

During her tenure, Pamela Drucker Mann was instrumental in ushering the business into the digital age, said Roger Lynch, Condé Nast’s chief executive.

Pamela Drucker Mann is leaving her post as global chief revenue officer and president of US and international revenue at Condé Nast, according to an internal memo seen by BoF.

Drucker Mann joined the publisher in 2005 as the director of sales at the now-defunct women’s monthly Jane magazine. Since then, she’s served as publisher at Glamour and Bon Appetit before being named chief marketing officer of Condé Nast. She assumed the position of chief revenue officer in 2019.

During her tenure, Drucker Mann was instrumental in ushering the business into the digital age, Roger Lynch, Condé Nast’s chief executive, wrote in the memo.

”She is leaving at a time when our commercial operations are better than ever because she’s built a tremendous team of leaders and experts around the globe,” Lynch added. “They have been resilient to the publishing industry’s headwinds, always pivoting and finding ways to over-deliver and put us on top.”

The news comes at the heels of unprecedented tumult at Condé Nast. The publisher recently made an eleventh hour deal with unionised Condé Nast employees who had threatened to disrupt this year’s Met Gala if management did not agree to a contract. In November 2023, the company had announced it would lay off 5 percent of its staff, around 270 employees, primarily in its video division Condé Nast Entertainment.

Drucker Mann will remain at her post until the summer while the publisher searches for a replacement.

”Leaving Condé Nast is the most difficult decision I’ve ever made because there is so much I will miss,” Drucker Mann wrote in a memo to staff. “Bringing in new audiences has unlocked creative and commercial opportunities never before imagined. This incredible transformation would not have been possible without your dedication and hard work, and I’m honoured to have been a part of it.”
